Grade 4: Continue reading and summarizing  Jake Drake. Monday chapter 5, Tues. chapter 6, Wed. chapter 7 and Thurs. chapter 9. Also, we will be having a S.S. test on the New England states. Flashcards and a map went home in the binder on Friday. The test is Wednesday. Please make sure your child knows the state, the capital, and the abbreviation for the state. Spelling/capitalization  counts!The test is a map just like the one sent home/seen below. They will have to know the location of each of the 6 N.E. states. I will not be assigning any math homework. Your child may have Gym several times this week!!! Please have them wear sneakers or comforatable shoes. Thanks!Mrs. Kennedy
