In this next unit we will explore economic concepts. Students will learn how we have unlimited economic wants and that these wants are desires that can be satisfied with goods and services. Students will also understand the effects of scarcity. In addition students will learn that when we make a choice between goods and or services we have an opportunity cost (that which we have not chosen). We will revisit natural and human characteristics in relation to the goods that we have because of both natural and human characteristics.
In reading we are learning about THEME. The theme is often referred to as the message, the lesson or the moral to a story. This is particularly difficult for students but is important. Students are asked this on the Developmental Reading Assessment and they need to be able to state the theme when being assessed. Review the anchor charts below to see how you can help them at home.
Accelerated Reading Goals
You can keep track of your students progress when they take an AR test. I have sent home the Renaissance Home Connect letter that tells you how to check on your child's progress.
