2.  We are finishing unit 9 in math, which is focused on multiplying and dividing large numbers. Many of the children need practice with multiplication facts...we now have 13 MULTIPLICATION MASTERS and 5 DIVISION MASTERS!  In reading we are in unit 8 and comparing and contrasting texts. In writing we are finishing an opinion essay. Your child is now with me for health. We are currently studying safety.  Cursive is going pretty well.  We know all of the lowercase letters and 24 uppercase letters already!

3.   We are getting ready for the MCA tests.  Our district is experiencing some hardware issues, so the schedule for testing may change.  Just have your child rested and ready every day.
