Dear Families,
            We have continued reading The Hope Chest this week.  Students have been writing summaries or verbally summarizing each chapter as we go along.  The students have also been applying their knowledge and skills of figuring our challenging words that they may not know in context and using glossaries that we have projected in class.  Your child has talked about specific characters in class and discussed how character actions affect others in the book and what it says about this character.  Students have come up with some great adjectives to describe them!
We will continue in Social Studies with Women in New York. We will be reading a story about Women and the Vote.
               This week in math, students practiced converting length and weight measurements. Students also created a “Robotic Gallon Man” to help them see and make sense of measurements and made conversions with different units for capacity (gallons, quarts, pints and cups). Students ended the week with converting time (seconds, minutes, hours, and days).
               A couple of reminders for next week:  AR points for the 4th quarter are due on June 14.  Remember to keep encouraging your child to read!  We will have a half day dismissal on Thursday, June 13.    If you would like to sign up your child for the extended day in the summer please remember to bring in the permission forms as soon as possible.  
   If you have any questions or concerns you can email any of us and we will respond as soon as we can.  Have a fantastic weekend!
