  We are working on  a unit on adding 3-digit numbers with and without regrouping. Afterwards we will move on to subtracting 3-digit humbers with and without regrouping.  Please keep practicing the basic addition and subtraction facts at home a little each evening.  We are working on the Accelerated Math program.  Each child works at his/her own level and at his/her own pace in this program.

We are using our math interactive journals to help reinforce the concepts that we cover each day and we meet in small groups for extra practice. There will usually be a homework assignment each evening to reinforce the concept taught that day.


    We have started chapter 2, Technology and Tools.  We have a consumable Science book with our new Science series this year. 

Lesson 1- What is technology?

Lesson 2- How do people design new things?

Lesson 3- How do we use tools and machines?

Social Studies

We are studying unit 2, Working to Meet Our Needs

Lesson 1- Needs and Wants
Lesson 2- Making Good Choices
Lesson 3- Producing and Consuming Goods
Lesson 4- Service Workers and Their Jobs
Lesson 5- Trading for Goods and Services

Lesson 6- Making Choices about Money

*** Our text is a consumable book.  We write responses to questions throughout the lessons in each chapter.  

Special Classes
Each week we will follow the A, B, C, D, schedule for special classes. 
A- P. E.
B- Art
C- Library
D- Music

We will have A, B, C, D, then repeat.  It would be a good idea to keep a pair of tennis shoes in your child's locker so that he/she will be prepared on P.E. days.
