We are Learning...

Reading: We are continuing to learn about strategies to help us read with fluency and accuracy! Good readers have many strategies to solve problems during reading!

Math: We are reviewing the addition and subtraction strategies we have learned and applying them to problem solving!

Writing: We are busy writing our personal narrative drafts and revising as we go! We are studying mentor texts to help us improve our writing.

Social Studies: We are focusing on the geography of our community. We will identify the major geographic characteristics as we use globes and maps. We will be comparing our neighborhoods to those in other parts of the world.
