This month:
Reading- We are continuing our work in Unit 3! Students have "Same Book" book buddies now, and they are working on reading their longer books and talking more with their buddies about the characters and events.
Writing-What a wonderful group of writers we have! Students are writing poetry. They are learning to revise and include precise words, and to "Show" not "Tell" their beautiful words.
Word Study- students will continue on their own lists, learning patterns such as long vowels, and special endings like -ed, -ing.
Math- The students are being challenged in Unit 6 to learn many strategies for double digit addition, such as ballpark estimates and partial sums.
Science/Social Studies- We have begun our Unit on Dinosaurs in preparation for our Field Trip April 5th!
