"Sweet April showers
Do spring May flowers."
- Thomas Tusser, A Hundred Good Points of Husbandry, 1557
We began our last week before April vacation with math and our P.E.A. Reading Buddies. Students read a book called If You Traveled On the Underground Railroad with them. We will be beginning our Black American Unit when we return to school in May.
We will finish our Fraction Unit this week. Hooray! Students are excited to move on to measurement, multiplication and geometry after vacation. They will have a one-sided assignment each night for homework this week.
Our Spelling Rule involves the V-C-E Exceptions this week. In these words the silent e does not make the vowel long. Students will have a Spelling Cafe choice for homework each night.
Please be sure to sign and return your child's gold report card envelope if you haven't done so yet.
Have a fantastic week! :)
