I hope you all had a great weekend. Below you find a brief overview of what to expect this week in your child's classroom.
Literacy: Students are studying the biography genre for the next few weeks. Throughout the study, they will learn to distinguish between chronological and episodic structures. They will also practice distinguishing between details and important events. Towards the end of the week, students will practice developing a theme based on the events and contributions of the subject. In the writing block, students will wrap up drafting their realistic fiction stories. I will teach students several strategies for ending their stories and then we'll begin the revision process. Part of the homework this week will include taking the drafts home and having a parent or guardian help with editing and revising.
Math: We'll wrap up unit 7 this week! Students will practice measuring to the nearest 1/8th of an inch and practice gathering data from a line plot. We will review for our unit 7 test. Students will be assessed on Friday.
Science: This week in Science, students will learn the different components of a food chain and a food web. They will also explore different ecosystems.
Progress Reports: Progress reports were sent home on Friday. Please make sure you sign and return the Progress Report as soon as possible.
