BIBLE: Our students did amazing leading in chapel this week! They recited their memory work from Ephesians 2. We are still working through Genesis and are focused in on the narrative of Jacob and Esau.

MATH: We will be learning about adding 2-digit numbers with regrouping and creating similar and congruent shapes.

Facts to know: All addition facts. Use homework pages to help your child practice all math facts learned so far. Make sure you are checking their math homework and paying attention to any areas of need.

**Tests: A Fact Assessment will be given on Tuesday, November 27th (100 addition facts). A Written Assessment will be given on Wednesday, November 28th (no study required).

READING: We will be working on our Story Structure unit.

** Homework time should include a periodic review of the pattern statement, process questions, and vocabulary words! Using books at home, ask your child what the character’s problem or goal is and how the character tries to reach or solve it.

**Tests: The Story Structure tests will be the first week of December.

**Please have your child read for twenty minutes each night. Include time for your child to read aloud to you. Check their comprehension by asking them to retell the story to you.
