Math--*IXL (online) 10-15 min./3x wkly; p26-Lines of Symmetry; Year Review--Multidigit Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Fraction Equivalents & Comparisons, Perimeter & Area, Geometric Shapes/Polygons

Practice multiplication/division math fact triangles nightly

Reading--Read 30-40 min./daily, sharing about your book, article, reading with an adult at home; questioning using "I wonder..." to deepen reading comprehension. Ask oneself "thick" questions--ones that cannot be answered with a simple yes or no; instead one that has more than one answer and makes one think! Make inferences by putting together personal schema (background info) with new information. 

Practice keyboarding skills 10-15 min./wkly (Using Nitrotype, Kidztype, or typing  ANYTHING for 20 min. nightly), as later this year your student is expected to be proficient with composing an essay in 1 sitting!

*--Students' IXL signons and passwords are the same, and the same as last year!
