Reading

We are still studying realistic fiction. Students have chosen debatable ideas about their texts. Next, they will determine two reasons to support their thinking and find evidence from the text to support these reasons. Students are using an app called Popplet to organize their thinking. The chart below shows the scaffold for their responses.

Writing

Students will be completing a writing piece about what they are thankful for. We will be focusing on brainstorming, editing and revising.

Social Studies

Students will begin their summative assessment for "Where We are in Place and Time". For this assessment, students will design the 51st state. They need to make a map of the state and include landforms and natural resources. They need to explain why these resources and/or landforms would encourage people to move to their state. They are so excited about this!

Math

Students are continuing to practice multiplying multi-digit numbers by one digit numbers. They will begin to work on solving two step multiplication story problems this week.
