Mrs. Velasco

Welcome to our class webpage! I hope you had a pleasant Winter break. As 2016 begins, I'm very eager to continue working with you in ensuring your child meets their academic goals.

In Language Arts, we are beginning  Unit 4. Students are learning about the elements that make an effective argument. We will continue working on argumentative writing for the remainder of Unit 3 and Unit 4. We are working very hard on developing an appropriate academic language. Students are using the 4 C's (Communication, Collaboration, Critical thinking, and Creativity) in class activities throughout the day. 

I
n Math, we are working on Ratios/Proportions. Students continue to develop the acquired skills in the previous mathematical units. Please encourage your child to practice their multiplication facts at home. Students can access Renaissance Math Facts in a Flash and DigitWhiz from home.
