This Week in ELAR
Reading STAAR is soon approaching! It is Tuesday, March 31st. We have a week and a day to prepare! That is exactly what we are doing. We will be focusing on drama and poetry this coming week. We will also be creating fun STAAR strategy posters. I also have some online reviews for us planned. It will be a great week!!! I will be sending home at least 1 reading passage as homework for extra practice!
Please continue to make sure your kiddo is doing their daily reading log and logging at least 20 minutes of reading a day and completing iStation on Wednesdays! I have really enjoyed reading their logs each week and seeing their thought process!

This Week In Science
This week, we will identify and compare the physical characteristics of the Sun, Earth, and Moon.
- I can identify and compare the physical characteristics of the Sun, Earth, and Moon, such as surface, temperature, geological features, composition, and size.
I will differentiate between the Sun which is made of gases, and the Earth and Moon, which are made largely from rock.
I will explain how Sun and Earth have very different atmospheres, while the Moon does not have a significant atmosphere. Only the Earth has liquid water.
What are the physical characteristics of the Sun?
What are the physical characteristics of the Earth?
What are the physical characteristics of Earth’s Moon?
