This Week in ELAR
Next week we will be learning about poetry. We will explore various books to analyze the different characteristics of poetry. Analyzing (breaking down) poetry can be difficult. However, when we break it up into smaller pieces and look at one skill at a time, such as inferencing, structure, of drawing conclusions, it makes it easier. Poetry is also a fantastic venue to learn about figurative language!! Can't wait!!
Wednesday--iStation on home computer or iPad
Please also make sure your child is completing their 20 minutes of reading per day and completing the Reading Log.

This Week In Science
This week we will begin our Fossils Unit. The students will be expected to identify fossils as evidence of past living organisms and the nature of the environments at the time using models
I will understand that fossils are traces or preserved parts of organisms that lived in the past.
I will understand that fossils can be used to interpret past events and environments.
I will use models to represent the passage of time and past organisms and environments.
How can fossils tell us which organisms lived millions of years ago?
How can fossils tell us what environments were like millions of years ago?
How can we represent fossils and past environments using models?
