Academic Happenings

Content & Writing-We are working really hard to finish our Alabama books. We have had extreme internet issues and our project is taking different routes than I expected. We have written several informational paragraphs about regions, animals and even adaptations. Next week we will be starting to write Science Fiction and will be creating our very own animal. (Sshh...please don't tell. They don't know yet!)


Math-We are beginning to work on division. PLEASE do not share your strategy for division yet. All we are looking at is how division is related to multiplication. Multiplication facts are still a struggle. Please continue to work on multiplication facts at home.


Reading-We are focusing on reading text and answering questions based on evidence in the text, not our own thoughts. We will also be talking about visualizing and making movie scenes in our head as we read.
