What is going on?

Writing: We will continue imaginative writing this week. Students will learn how to hook their reader with a good lead-question, onomatopoeia, dialogue, setting, fact, funny. Students will also learn to show not tell. This is an adding details writing strategy.


Spelling Words and Grammar: call, far, head, most, red, suddenly, thing, want

This week we begin a 2 week unit on pronouns. A pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun.


Reading: We will look at the features of procedural texts and determine the strategies needed to read and understand this type of literature


Math: We will begin to subtract 3-digit numbers by practicing various strategies to solve these more challenging problems. The students will be expected to apply these different strategies when completing our daily problem solving.


Social Studies: The student is learning to identify what is a government and leaders within the government and their roles. Students will name current public officials and ways that the public officials are selected. Later in the week, students will identify governmental services in the community such as police and fire protection, libraries, schools, and

parks and explain their value to the community.
