We are settling into our schedule and routine, getting focused on our learning. We are still working through Second Step lessons during our content block. Our first math unit is called "Prime Time," and we begin the year looking at relationships between numbers (factors, multiples, prime, and composite numbers). We have completed our first Investigation and are heading into Investigation 2 now. In literacy we have just started our first module: The Hero's Journey (mythology).

You can expect students to have homework in reading and math most days. Homework is listed under the tabs at left. Students will call home to let you know if they have forgotten to complete any homework to keep you informed and to enable you to help your student find time and space to practice what they are learning at home. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at the number/email listed below.
