Message from Mr. Katzenback

Academic Focus

Reading: This month, we will continue our study of characters.  We will also continue our work of adding evidence from the text to strengthen our written responses by using the RACE strategy.

 Writing: The students will continue composing and publishing their realistic fiction stories.

 Math:  In the beginning of the month, we will finish our area and perimeter unit. When that unit is complete, we will begin our unit on fractions.

Social Studies: We will continue working on our Immigration Unit.

Spelling: The students will receive new spelling words every two weeks. They will review their pattern through several activities. During week two, new words will be introduced to further explore the pattern
