In Literacy, the second marking period, we will focus on Literary writing. The students will be able to read short stories and determine the theme of the story. They will be able to compare two stories and discuss how they share common themes. 
In Social Studies we will be discussing, "Early People". They will learn about the earliest people of the Americas, how they lived, what they ate, and what their life was like. 
As the "Winter Break" nears, I would like to ask that you make sure your child continues to read each night. Consistency is key to building fluency and comprehension. Students should be reading independently each night for at least 15 minutes and completing a reading log.
Thank you for your continued support. Working together, you and I can assist your child in becoming the best learner they can be.

      Sincerely, Mrs.Stoddard
