Language Arts

Our Journey's selection this week is called Cougars by Patricia Corrigan. We are focusing on main idea and details as well as monitoring and clarifying text to better our comprehension skills. Our essential question is "What are the most important ideas about cougars?". On Friday of this week (3/18) we will take our vocabulary, comprehension, and grammar tests for lesson 10.


In writing this week, we are continuing to focus on multi-paragraph writing. We are working on introduction and concluding paragraphs along with color coding our work.


In science this week we are studying animal communication and behavior. We began our work on group presentations on migratory animals this week.
