What We Are Learning This Month

In reading we are working with our Journeys reading program to read both fiction and non-fiction selections. We have been learning about characters, cause/effect, visualization, and story elements.

In language arts we are writing personal narratives, learning about nouns, compound sentences, and plural nouns.

In math we are learning about different types of graphs.

In social studies we are completing our geography unit and will be moving on to a science unit on Earth's resources.

Reminder that Dan Emmett offers more homework help before school beginning at 8:00.

Schoolhouse Rock

Remember those silly little videos that were shown every Saturday morning during cartoons? We have been watching them to help us learn such things as subjects/predicates, compound sentences/conjunctions, and nouns. These are easily accessible on You Tube and the kids LOVE them!!
