Welcome to our NEW newsletter!
Curriculum Updates-What are we doing in class?
Reading We are focusing on nonfiction texts this week. We will be reading nonfiction books and looking for nonfiction text features, such as headings, charts, graphs, lists, captions, and many more. Your child's homework will have them working on a scavenger hunt in nonfiction texts. They will be looking for the nonfiction text features that we have been learning about!
Writing With all of our reading about nonfiction topics, we will be writing nonfiction pieces in class. Right now we are practicing organizing the information and then writing the information. In a couple weeks we will focus on writing a nonfiction piece based on the social studies topics we will be discussing in class.
Math We are working with numbers in the thousands, adding and subtracting numbers, and still working on multiplication facts. Math is a busy time of day. We have also started our Math Small Groups, which focus on the specific math needs of your child. We have students working on different skills in math and this is the time of day their specific needs are met. It is a fun time of day!
Social Studies We are beginning a unit on the colonial Americans, specifically in North Carolina.
