This week in Reader's Workshop students will be writing reviews on the books that they are reading! We will share completed reviews in class!

During Writer's Workshop we continue to write about many landmarks. Each student is also focusing on one landmark to research, and then he/she will make a Google Doc or slide show about it.

In Math we continue to focus on problem solving using addition and subtraction. We are also getting better at understanding fact families for addition and subtraction!

In our unit of inquiry we will sort some of the world's landmarks into categories. We will consider many things about each landmark: age, reason, materials used, etc.
