Peek at the Week
Here is what is coming up next week!
Writing-We have started our new unit on personal narratives this week. The students are writing about a favorite place and an activity they did in their favorite place. We reviewed brainstorming, jotting, linear progression, and creating leads.
Reading-We have begun our unit called Once Upon a Time and have begun looking at classic literature such as folktales, fairytales, fables, tall tales and legends. We will be continuing looking at folktales and their qualities and then will begin our fables unit.
Math-We are finishing up our small unit on deepening our understanding of multiplication and division. We will be adding more knowledge about addition and subtraction of fractions.
