Wonders

We are working hard on research. We are currently in the Prewriting stage of the writing process. The steps of the writing process are:

  • prewriting
  • rough draft
  • revising
  • editing
  • publishing


We also learned about fairy tales. We read, "Juanita and the Beanstalk". Fairy Tales

  • are made up stories with made up events that could not really happen
  • usually have magical characters or settings
  • almost always have a happy ending with a message

Envisions Math

We wrapped up Topic 10 on fractions this week. We will be having our test on Monday. Topic 11 practice packets (not required) will be sent home then.

South America

We finished our maps! The kids did a great job. Make sure to stop by and check them out in our hallway or you can see pictures on Facebook! We are currently working on research. The research is slow going right now, but we are taking our time and learning how to cite sources and take notes without copying. If you'd like to research or work with your child at home, please feel free to do so!
