April Curriculum Update
Once we finish our nonfiction unit, we are going to start our adventure unit. We will approach this genre through a book club study as well. We will analyze characters, their actions, and discuss how events shape the outcomes in our books. We will also deepen the conversation about author's purpose and "mental movies."
Once we publish our fairy tales, we are going to have a poetry mini-unit. We are going to learn about different types of poems and publish 3 different poems. We are going to read, listen to, and study poems to help us stretch our volume of entries and practice expressing ourselves in this fashion. The students will publish their poems in the computer lab.
Math Centers are Back! Wednesday, April 23rd 12:30-1:30. Email me if you're interested!
By the middle of the month we will be studying units of capacity. We will identify kiloliters, liters, gallons, quarts, pints, and cups. We will measure and compare these units as well as convert, add, and subtract them.
We have also been making comparisons between the metric system and the customary system of measurement.
The students will show off their brochures to the class and fill out their passports to "officially" visit each country.
