We are in the last phases of learning the United States, their abbreviations, capitals, and locations. Some students have moved on to other regions of the world! Way to go! Please check with your student to see what they are learning about.
Our read aloud is Schooled by Gordon Korman. It is about a homeschooled kid that goes to a public school for the first time in his life. He is already President of the 8th grade class. Ask your student about what they think will happen at the Halloween dance that Capricorn Anderson is supposed to be planning? (Reminder: Cap has never been to a dance before!!)
Please remind your student to work hard until the end. We still have work that needs to be done, but if they use his/her time wisely in class, there should be very little work to be done at home. Thank you in advance for your help with this task.
Sincerely, Suzi Young 5th grade teacher firstname.lastname@example.org
