Weekly Updates for the week of November 30th
What's Happening This Week
· Writer's Workshop:
· Reader's Workshop: How can you determine the author's point of view about a topic? How does an author use facts to support his/her opinion?
We will be using clues from an informational text to determine the author's point of view about a topic. The students will then tell their point of view of the same topic and will discuss similarities and differences between the two points of view. We will also be discussing how an author uses facts to support their opinion.
· Math Workshop: What strategies do we use when multiplying numbers?
We will be finishing our multiplication units and will be reviewing those concepts. The students will be taking a multiplication quiz on Friday.
· Social Studies: We will start our next Social Studies Unit is on how communities change. We will be discussing how Fishers has changed over time, the factors that causes a community to change, and Native American Tribes that were in our area.
