After Spring Break- New WNC unit

One of the standards in Social Studies is to explore how the local community has changed over time. We will learn about the "Applachain Culture" and other local changes in our community over time. If you would like to share or know someone who could share with us in the next month please give me an email at alexandra.briggs@acsgmail.net. We are looking for stories, music, artistic talent, farming, historical artifacts and local legends related to the asheville/ buncombe/ Western NC.

Quick overview of what are we learning

Fundations: We have started unit 11! In unit 11 we finally get to learn about the vowel-constant-e syllable rule. We learn how the e at the end of the word changes the vowel sound. Unit 11 is a 3 week unit. Please complete the homework for each week.


Writing: We are focusing hard on writing this month because the written response assessment is coming up in the first week of May. We are working on fiction and non-fiction writing.


Daily 5: We are learning about fables, folk tales and fairy tales. We are also working extremely hard and well independently this week in our Daily 5 choices.


Math: Our new unit is Place Value. We will begin this unit with 1s and 10s place.


Social Studies: Appalachian Culture/ Historic Asheville Unit
