What We Have Been Learning
Ask Your Child About

Talking with your child is the best way to support classroom learning. The following questions can help you get started.

  • How is gas evidence of a chemical reaction?
  • Ask your child to help you the next time you're dividing up something for the family. You order 2 pizzas for 5 people. How much does each person get?
  • What is "close reading"? Can you demonstrate for me?.
  • Can you fill me in on your colony? How much food do you have? Has anything traic happened? 
  • Tell me about your essay 2. Who or what are you writing too? 

Your child should be reading for 30 minutes each day!
