Broomall's Homeroom Class
Language Arts: Reading and Writing
This week in Reading students will explore genres of literature and begin to identify their favorite types of literature. Please see the image below for the different types of genres.
This week in Writing students will select from their list of seed ideas to write small moment narratives. Once they have selected from their list, they will begin to write their small moment stores.
This week, students will continue to add and subtract with regrouping using place value strategies. Students have not been exposed to the standard algorithm yet but will be in the second quarter. We will also begin to talk about benchmark numbers and midpoints in order to round to the nearest ten and hundred.

Leader in Me
