Readers Workshop: We will be reading various books on animals to help identify how they resemble their parents, body coverings, and what they do to help them survive within their environments.

Writer’s Workshop: We will be learning the revising step of the writing process. We will be reading our writing and going back to add more detail or sentences to make our writing stronger.

Science: Organisms and their environments: We will discuss how organisms resemble their parents and have structures and processes that help them survive within their environment.

Social Studies: We will begin our unit on Technology and media. The goal of this unit is for students to identify ways that technology can be used to benefit people and how might be different without modern technology.
