Language Arts:  We started our second unit

This unit we will be learning, short vowels, long vowels, words with u sounds, r-controlled vowels, and /ur/ r-controlled vowels.

Grammar - Look for grammar lessons in your child's cub folder. The top of the paper always has a "mini lesson" from the day. This unit we will be learning; sentences, subjects and predicates, compound sentences, complex sentences, and run-on sentences.

Math: Our Chapter 4 test is on Tuesday October 24th

Social Studies: Students are working on their explorer projects

Science:
We will start science next week with Mrs. Green. Our science standards are changing to the NGSS. Our focus will be on STEM activities where students will explore and have more hands on opportunities. Grades will be based on collaboration with their group, retesting the experiment, completion of worksheets and Zingy learning (a website) tests.
