In Writing, we are continuing to practice our grammar rules and strategies with grammar passages. We are also going to practice writing personal narratives, including the introduction (s.c.a.r.e.d), body, and conclusion.

Science & Social Studies / Ciencias y Estudios Sociales

In science, we will have time to continue researching and working on our science fair projects using the scientific method.

For social studies, we will begin a new unit on the Texas Revolution, including the Battle of the Alamo, the Texas Declaration of Independence, the Runaway Scrape, and the Battle of San Jacinto. It's going to be an exciting unit!
