Our classroom continues to have a lack of focus so far this week. Please discuss that we still have a month of school and expectations are the same.

Talking needs to stop and listening and following directions needs to improve!

Social Studies - We will begin creating the state floats tomorrow (Tuesday). Continue to research at home. Printing information for your float is also a good idea.

Please send in supplies as needed. In the downloads section of the classroom webpage is a state float example file so you can see what floats can look like.

Continue to remind your child to stay focused on work and less time talking.

We have finished up with narrative writing. We were focusing small moment stories with deep rich characters and settings.

We will finish up the Heroes Unit in the next week or so.

Essential Questions for this fourth quarter:

How do heroes affect society?

What lessons do literary heroes teach us?

If you need to order hot lunches. Ordering is only
