This Week In....

Reading: we continued to work on identifying main idea and details using our guided reading books. Additionally, we worked on responding to our reading!

Math: we worked with positive and negative integers and began Unit 8 by working with fractions.

Cursive: we learned how to tow letters!

Science: we began learning about the Solar System! 6th graders came to our class and taught us about what they know about the Solar System in order to prepare us for our learning!
