9/30- Unit 2 Math test
This week's featured reporters are: Megan Curry, Bella Hernandez and Kara Zimolzak
Cla-click! The door is closed, time to read! A couple of days ago we finished The Bad Beginning. Now we are reading Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli. It is crazy! I can't wait to read more. Last week we read "Lewis and Clark and Me" and this week we read "On the Banks of Plum Creek". A lot of people are reading Frogs and Polar Bear Vs. Grizzly Bear. Maniac Magee is pretty interesting. I hope you guys are challenging yourselves with really hard books.
In writing, we worked on Expository Writing. We are writing about pumpkins. There are so many types of pumpkins. We are also working on a parody. I think it's funny to make a parody We are super busy!
In Social Studies, we learned about the 3 branches of government. Some about the Constitution and last but not least, we learned how a bill becomes a law. Now we are working on our web quest packets. We use a search engine to learn a little about the government, the Constitution and more.
Next week will be Week 4 for our Reading Unit. We will be reading "The Horned Toad Prince", a trickster tale, and will focus on author's purpose and story structure.
In Social Studies, we will be finishing up studying Government with a quiz reviewing The Constitution, The Preamble and the Branches of Government.
We will also be finishing up Unit 2 in Math with a test on Tuesday. Unit 3 begins with Multiplication Facts!
