As usual, we have been very busy in the classroom. We have finished our first bend for our research based argument essays on debatable topics in reading and writing workshop. We wrote letters to Mr. Casale and Ms. Cleary persuading them to take into consideration our claims. We have a bunch of mini-lawyers in our classroom. We are currently reading aloud the book Crash. Our next unit of study is Historical Fiction Book Clubs and we will be reading the book Number the Stars. In math, we are breezing through decimals. We now use the mid chapter checkpoints as quiz grades and take ¨friendly¨ versions of the tests. We encourage you to log on to thinkcentral.com (usernames and passwords are on our google classroom) to help you with homework or anything that you want to boost your level with. Please, work with your child at home on math homework and remember there are so many resources, thinkcental being just one, that are available on the internet, Khan Academy is another.
Thank you, parents, for all you do to help your child succeed in school.
