Write a letter to a famous American. The famous American can be living or not. Make sure you include a greeting, 3 or more sentences that identify facts about that person, a question you have for that person, and a closing.
Since this is later notice, this assignment is not due until next Sunday, May 1.
Spelling Words: saw, draw, crawl, law, jaw, paw, lawn, yawn, hawk, straw
We will read a non-fiction text about Alexander Graham Bell. We will practice summarizing after reading. We will explore spelling "aw" words. We will begin end of year DRA (reading) testing. I will be pulling students one at a time to assess reading levels.
We will continue working on our realistic fiction writing. We will focus on including a beginning, middle, and end. We will work on showing more details in our writing.
We will continue with our 3-D shape unit. We will work on identifying solid figures, describing flat surfaces and vertices, sorting solid figures, and using reasoning.
We will finish comparing and contrasting famous Americans. We will use Venn Diagrams and T charts to show our understanding.
