Building LEADERS one subject at a time!

Reading: This week we will be reading a book about Ruby Bridges, a civil rights activist known for being the first black child to attend an all-white elementary school in Louisiana. We will summarize non fiction text to identify important ideas when reading a biography.

Math: This week we will begin Chapter 9, Operations with Fractions!!! We will add, subtract, and multiply fractions! Yippee!!!

Science: Students will continue to explore various rocks and minerals! We will also explore types of soil.

Writing: This week we are starting a new UNIT on fantasy stories!!! We will be reading, A Frog Prince, Continued, The Princess and the Pizza, Gorky Rises, and Wizzil. These stories will help us to identify elements of a fantasy story!!! Then we can begin writing one on our own!
