    What a short week of school!  I hope everyone can enjoy an extra day off this week and comes back to school on Monday rested, recuperated, and ready to learn.  Hard to believe we are starting the last week of February!!   Time is just flying by.  Next week is the end of the 5th week of this marking period already.  Progress reports will be sent home on Friday.  Please sign and return.  The third marking period always seems to come and go in a blink of the eye.

    Next week we will be learning a new genre, realistic fiction.  We will be reading in small groups realistic fiction books, working on picking out skills such as character, setting, and plot.  Students will also continue to work independently on their reading and comprehension skills, along with being able to write a summary of their own reading. 

    In math we will be having working on partial-products multiplication, the commutative property, area models for rectangles, and multi-step multiplication number stories. 

    M-Step is quickly approaching.  We will begin doing some intensive practice work in the next few weeks so that we are comfortable with using the computer, answering higher level questions, and typing out responses. 

    Have a great weekend!  See everyone on Monday.

    Ms. Clark and Mrs. Ross
