April

Dear Parents and Guardians,

reading

This month in reading we are starting our Series Book Clubs. This means we are studying character traits and plot changes, noticing patterns, and making predictions. At home, please practice the strategies you see in your child’s baggies to help with retell.

writing

This month, we are writing about reading and forming our own opinions about books. Please use language at home with your child such as, “From my point of view, the author states,” and “In my opinion…”

math

This month we are going to learn the foundations of multiplication and how to determine even and odd numbers. You can practice this with your child using materials around the house like socks. If every sock has a partner or is in a pair, the number is even. If there is a sock leftover without a partner, the number of socks is odd.

social studies

We are learning about the government and its laws.

science

We are still learning about plants and living things.
