- Reading: We read a historical fiction story about the San Francisco earthquake of 1906 and reviewed sequencing of events in a story.
- Writing: We wrapped up our explanatory essays and briefly talked about problem-solution essays.
- Grammar: We worked on possessive nouns.

Science and Social Studies
- Science: This week in science we learned about how energy and motion are related. We also talked about how energy is transferred. Students created a simple experiment to test their thoughts on how energy is transferred from colliding objects. At camp students went on an eco hike and learned about the ecology of a northern Michigan forest.
- Social Studies: We started talking about Mini-Society and learned basic economic concepts. Our first lesson was about scarcity, it involved a snickers bar, ask your child about the lesson. At camp we had a lesson about pioneer life in northern Michigan and the children used pioneer tools to make a stool.
