Hello Families,
Next week, we have lesson 2 for Journeys.  The spelling will focus on the long "a" and long "e" with grammar being the kinds of sentences.  Students have workbook pages to complete that are due each Friday on the day of their test.  Those pages include spelling practice, grammar, and writing.  Our math will include continuing with chapter 1 on fractions.  We have been working on equivalent fractions, adding, and subtracting fractions both with and without regrouping.  In U.S. History, we are studying our states and capitals as well as started our early Americans lessons.  The states and capitals test will be on October 5th.  We will take another states and capitals test at the end of the school year that requires the location of the states as well as the capital identification.  For now, they will need to be able to match the correct state with its capital when given all the names.  Science will be finishing moon phases and the night sky.  

Important dates--Friday, September 28th-reading test and Endangered Species writing due.
Monday, October 1st-science quiz
Friday, October 5th-states and capitals test
