Unit 2 of our reading series emphasizes stories with animals. This unit focuses on folktales, fables, and a drama. Being able to identify the theme of a story and summarize are key skills in this unit.
Unit 2 of spelling has begun. The homework is still due on Thursdays, but students have the option to choose from a new assignment each week (no repeats please). Assignments are similar to the ones required from Unit 1.
This week we began studying government! We will focus first on the national/federal government, then state government, finishing up with our rights and responsibilities. It is nice for students to relate our classroom information to current events however, we will not be discussing the current candidates or sharing political views. Please use this time as a teaching moment at home to understand how citizens have the right to elect our officials.
