**We are now entering the height of cold and flu season. Donations of boxes of tissues as well as Lysol and Clorox wipes are gratefully accepted.**
ELA/Reading: We are finishing reading the non-fiction story So You Want to Be President? And, students will write persuasive essays on why or why not they would want to be president of the United States using textual evidence as support. Our grammar point is common and proper nouns.
Math: We are still focused on applying multiplication in two-step and multi-step word problems. We will then move on to 2 digit by 2 digit multiplication and how to calculate area and perimeter. Please be sure to quiz your children on their times tables!
Science: We are still examining the question of what living organisms need to survive, and this week we are particularly focused on pollination and on seed movement/plant life cycles. Students will be using their many talents by the end of this week to create their own explanations of seed dispersal- either by art, creating a presentation, or creating video explanation.
Social Studies: We are now focused on the first inhabitants in NY. We will explore who the Algonquian were. Be sure to ask your child how the first inhabitants of what is now NY arrived here.
Religion: We are focusing on the meaning of Advent and will be making our own Advent wreaths. We will also be creating and acting out stories that reveal the true meaning of Christmas.
