Dear Parents/Guardians,

I hope all is well. This week starting Monday, April 27th- April 29th, we will be taking the PARCC Assessment. As I stated the last time we took the PARCC, all we really want is for the children to use the knowledge they have and to do their best. I have no doubt they will.

This week we will be working on the following:

We will continue with Unit 9, Coordinate points. We will also explore areas of rectangles.

Homework: Due to PARCC testing, I try to limit homework until after testing is over to ensure the student’s get a good nights rest. We will resume homework after testing.

Language Arts:

We are practicing writing poems using figurative language such as metaphors and similes. We are also turning inanimate objects into “real” objects through personification, a genre  of poetry. We will also be reading passages from various sources and taking comprehension assessments based on these selections.

Social Studies: We will take the chapter test on The Colonies.

Civics: We are reading “LaCausa,” the story of Cesar Chavez, a migrant worker who started the Farmworker’s union.

Have A Great Week!
