Math: Still working on division. After break we will get into long division, so it is important that your child is practicing their facts at home.
Writing: Opinion writing
Reading: We started reading nonfiction texts last week. The students are loving reading about the real world. Your child is coming home with a Thanksgiving Break Reading Challenge. If they get bored over the break you can remind them to read! ;)
Social Studies: We finished up our Westward Expansion unit, so to wrap it up the kids had to complete a design challenge. The students had to work with their classmates to see who could design a covered wagon that would hold the weight of their "supplies" (a full can of soda). The team that won got to have their "supplies". The joke was on me because...EVERY team won ;)
