Spring is Almost Here??
Here's What We've Been Working On!
Writing-This week we dove in to biographies! Your child has a notebook started in notability (app on iPad) that they have expectations of the paragraphs that are due Monday.
ELA-Our focus has been on Theme, and next week we're revisiting conflict/resolution
Science-Astronomy! We're starting to look at how things change in space. This week we learned about how the earth rotates/revolves & tilts around the sun, and what these movements cause. (days/nights/seasons)
We're reformatted our daily 5 block each day to include "rounds"- During this time, your child is dedicating time to working on becoming a better reader/writer. They are responsible for completing certain tasks each week, including a wonderopolis.com tri-fold and work on their writing piece (biography for the next week) I'm giving the children more accountability and responsibility during this time to become more independent thinkers.
