We will review Unit 4 for the next 2 weeks due to PARCC testing. We will spend our literacy block going back over concepts that we covered during the last 5 weeks. The unit test will be on THURSDAY, APRIL 14TH. The following week we begin our FINAL Reading Street unit! It’s seems surreal to me that the year is almost over. Our fifth and final unit focuses on the theme of adventurers. Last year, the stories included in this unit seemed to be some of the class favorites!
We will switch our focus to social studies. The students will be working on their Famous Person research, paper, and projects during this time. Due dates for this are as follows:
April 7th: Notes due
April 14th: Rough Draft due
May 12th: Final copy of paper and projects due
May 27th: Wax Museum (more details to come)
