Monday, March 4- Wax Museum
Your child will come home today with their important leader that they’ll be researching and presenting.  They’ll be given a packet with all the details.  This is always a really fun project that the students end up loving and learning a lot!
ELA- We are wrapping up our space unit with our final essay on whether or not everyone would want to be an astronaut on the Apollo 11 Mission, and beginning our new unit, which is immigration.  We start off by learning about The Statue of Liberty, and studying the Emma Lazarus poem The New Colossus, which is on the base of the statue.  We will start TCAP prep during ELA time.
Math- We are finishing multiplication patterns and strategies, and beginning problem solving in word problems using all 4 operations.  We will start TCAP Math prep during math.
Science- Weather patterns, climate, and clouds!
Happy to be back in school!
