1/5- Classes Resume
Math: We will be looking at data and how to interpret and analyze graphs.
Writing: Students will choose a book to do a review on. This will be our first "opinion" writing piece of the year. We will discuss using evidence or examples to support their opinion.
Reading: We will close our government/reading unit by focusing specifically on the three branches of government.
Important Information About Our Specials Schedule:
Students will need tennis shoes on THURSDAY now instead of WEDNESDAY.
When students synthesize, they combine new ideas with their schema to better understand a text. We have used the founding father, Thomas Jefferson to learn more about this reading strategy.
Students filled in a KWL chart (What I KNOW, What I WONDER, and what I LEARNED) on Thomas Jefferson. They read books individually and collected new facts about him.
We came together as a class to share and discuss how our thinking has changed and grown about Thomas Jefferson.
Next week we will use our mind map (web) to summarize our knowledge.
