Grammar: We will be working on prepositional phrases this week.

WTW: Quiz Friday
Writing: I have been conferencing with each student to discuss his/her chapter 1. After final edits are made, students will work to change their writing from 3rd person to 1st person. The version in 1st person will be their speech that will need to be memorized by the dress rehearsal on May 11. My goal is to have these done and sent home by the end of next week.
April is National Poetry Month! We will be spending time over the next few weeks studying figurative language and poetry. This week, we will be focusing on similes, metaphors, personification, and alliteration.
Unit 5 covers a large amount of time in our nation's history. We will be studying major events from World War I to current times. Students will be divided into small groups to study specific events during this time period and will present their information to the class.
Class time this week will be spent finishing up their area and perimeter zoo project. We will begin Unit 9 next week, which covers decimals, fractions, and percents.
