We are Learning...

Reading: We are continuing to study nonfiction texts. We will be focusing on using the features of nonfiction texts to help us learn more. We will practice using the table of contents, glossary, photographs, and captions as we read!

Math: We will focus on reviewing skills previously taught this year.

Writing: We will continue our author mentor study of Kevin Henkes as we write personal narratives.

Social Studies: We will continue our study on economics. Students will describe how people in a community use productive resources, create a variety of businesses and industries, specialize in different types of jobs, and depend on each other to supply goods and services.
