In Friday folders students brought home a letter and log-on information for Read Theory.  This is a great website for students to practice reading skills at home.  I can monitor and print reports for those that use the site.

In fifth grade we will be completing our discussion on the presidential election issues and then begin reading the story "Passage to Freedom"  Students also have their chapter book assignments.  In science we will continue with weather, specifically clouds and air pressure.
In fourth grade will continue talking about past presidents by reading some poetry and a drama.  Students will be comparing and contrasting the poetry, drama and news articles.  It's important students understand the differences between different types of text, including the structure, purpose and theme.  In science we will continue our study of energy.
