Salmon's Week 28 Update

April 11th - 15th

Overview

Reading - We are reading story with weather themes. Our story this week is titled Eye of the torm. The nonfiction stories are focusing on Graphic Sources (text features) and cause/effect. Cause and effect is tricky because often 1 cause can lead to two effect. For Walk to Read we are reading novels. The students will work with partner to read and answer questions that target similar questions to what they will see on the SBAC at the year.


Writing: Our Poetry Unit has begun. This will take us several weeks to complete and the students really enjoy this writing. April is Poetry Month!!


Science - Weather is our focus over the next few weeks. We are learning about the different clouds and the technology that we use to predict the weather in our area. Please remind your child that climate is long term and weather is daily.


Social Studies - Our unit on the middle-west will be wrapping up and we will beginning the Mountain Region. Your children will teach me a thing or two I'm sure.
