What we will be learning - March 17th-21st

Science - We will explore and practice the different ways to communicate to others. We will identify locations around the world of inventions/inventors and create a timeline.
Writing - Students will plan and write a narrative with a great beginning. They will also work on their "Paragraph of the Week". Students will write about a favorite holiday. They will describe what they like about it and include details.
