READING: We are continuing with our class read A Long Walk to Water. Students are learning how to work in cooperative learning groups for literature circles. We are focusing on vocabulary development, comprehension, figurative language, theme, and making connections between texts.
SCIENCE/WRITING: Students are working on using a 5 paragraph essay graphic organizer to write their research report. Please have your child show you their progress on google classroom. Students are required to use a variety of primary and secondary sources. All students must craft questions and conduct an interview for a primary source. You can help by brainstorming possible people to interview, setting up interviews, recording interviews, and helping your child to document the interview.
SOCIAL STUDIES: Students will be investigating practices used throughout history in economic systems. In particular, they will investigate the use of slaves and how this impacted the early development of the United States as well as other places around the world.
Have a fantastic long weekend everyone!
