WEEKLY READING LOGS:
Please assist your child in selecting appropriate books to read each night for at least 20 minutes. These can be chapter books, picture books, magazine articles, stories from our Journeys reader, reading with/to a family member, etc… The best way children learn to read is by READING, so every little bit counts! Reading books for enjoyment will help develop a love of reading, a greater vocabulary, and improve comprehension. Reading logs are to be filled out, completed, and turned in EVERY FRIDAY signed by a parent or guardian. This is a Homework Grade!!!!

We will wrap up Chapter 10, which includes 2- and 3-digit multiplication. Then we will begin Chapter 11, which focuses on long division with and without remainders.
Students will review their basic multiplication facts and will begin to multiply multi-digit numbers to solve for larger products.
Homework: Students will have homework Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday this week.
*Students should continue to be studying and mastering their multiplication facts 0-10 daily! This will make them more comfortable as we begin larger division, fractions, and multi-digit multiplication. As always, students should continue to review their simple addition and subtraction facts as well, as this is the foundation for all that we do in math.
Test: Students will be assessed throughout the chapter.
We will begin Chapter 16, Sacraments of Initiation.
