Brunswick. We will be spending this week revising and editing them
using our acronym, CUPS (Capitalization, Understanding, Punctuation, and Spelling).
are well into our map unit. Students are learning how to read

on a map, in relation to another object. We are also learning how to
use a map grid and a map key to locate places on a map.
have finished unit 1 and have started unit 2 in math. Students will be
focusing on addition and subtraction regrouping, as well as problem
solving, during unit 2. The test will be in about 3 weeks. Please be
sure your child is practicing his/her addition facts each night for at
least 5 minutes a day!
