Reading - The students have been divided into groups according to their reading levels. They will be meeting with me at least twice a week for about 20-25 minutes. We will also be learning Fact and Opinion.
Math - Unit 3 starts this week. This unit centers around operations. This week the students will learn about number patterns and estimating cost.

This means that some students will be doing enrichment activties and some will recieve remediation as necessary.
