What's up in our classroom
Week of April 4th
Reading and Writing
*We have started our new class novel, Island of the Blue Dolphin by Scott O'Dell. The novel is historical fiction and we will learn the history that led to this lovely book.
*We'll begin a poetry unit at the beginning of next week!
Vocabulary--This week our study is man-, manu- meaning hand. Portable recurred on this list, so we revisited the suffix -able. Here is a link to the vocabulary slide show.
