**English Language Arts**

This week students completed their mask artwork from their visit to the Museum of Anthropology and viewed two episodes of Raven's Tales. After the break, we will begin writing our own legends!

Every week, students receive a spelling assignment with a particular focus (long a, short a, consonant blends, etc.) In addition to the assignment, students are expected to be prepared for a weekly spelling quiz based on the list words. Please encourage your child to spend time four or five times per week practicing these spelling words.

**MathematicsIn Math, students continued their study of multiplication facts. In particular, they learned how to use the multiplication of a number by 10 to calculate the product of that same number x 5 (divide the original product in half), x 9 (subtract the factor once from the original product) and x 8 (subtract the factor twice from the original product.) They also played multiplication war, multiplication tic-tac-toe, multiplication bingo and completed their multiplication pop art.

The multiplication practice activities below are directly linked to the strategies we have been exploring in class. Based on classroom instruction, students should be able to complete the activities associated with lesson 1 through 6.

**Career and Health Education**

This week students read an article entitled: “Mangez bien. Vivez bien.” They discussed the links between healthy eating and healthy living. Students also examined several advertisements for various cereals and discussed how advertising and media can influence our food choices. Students are learning how these influences can be evaluated to make healthier food choices.

Thursday afternoon, students participated in Tennyson Circles.
