Academics at a Glance
Reading: We will continue to read Maniac Magee in class, as well as Rules in small groups. Our focus will be internal and external struggles, and how to deal with them.
Writing: We are working on our hospital writing, finishing, editing, and adding pictures.
Math: We are continuing our multiply and measure unit. The kids are building gallon, quart, pint, and cup models to help them grasp how they fit together. We will also be starting our bridges project where students need to design and construct the strongest bridge possible while staying under budget.
Social Studies: We are starting on our unit on California in the Postwar Era: Immigration, Technology, and Cities. Here are the big questions to discuss with your child:
- How did California grow in the second half of the twentieth century compared to how it grew in the previous 100 years?
- Who came to California? What was it like for these newly arrived migrants compared to people who had lived in the state for many years?
- How did people shape their environments?
- What are some unresolved problems facing California today?
Have a great week,
