Curriculum Corner

Reading: We will start a biography project this week. We will be using class time to find a book and work on the research part of the project, but students will need to find or create a costume and props at home. To present their project, they will dress up as their famous person and give a 3 minute speech to the class. I will send a rubric home with the kids so you know what to expect. :)

Math: Review division and multiplication

Science: Students will explore animal adaptations that help them survive in their environment.

Social Studies: Republic of Texas

Writing: Creative writing that maintains elements of fiction such as: plot, characters, conflict, theme, and setting.
