We started unit 1 of Lucy Calkin's Units of Study for Reading today. This unit focuses on realistic fiction which will blend nicely with our writing unit. We will be reading The Tiger Rising by Kate DiCamillo as our read aloud book and mentor text. Students may begin bringing home short reading homework from this unit each night. I am also beginning some reading groups this week.


We began Module 2 today titled Unit Conversions and Problem Solving with Metric Measurement. This is a very quick unit that will last about five days.

Social Studies

We will be reviewing map skills this week and we will begin to learn more about the physical environment of New York state.
