December Book Report
We are are leaning about this month
Writing: Students are learning about types of sentences and punctuation (., !, ?) and when to use each type of ending punctuation. Students are also working on friendly letter writing and expository writing as well as editing and revising.
MATH: Students are learning about data collection through questionnaires and surveys as well as reasons and needs to collect data. Students will then take the data and represent it through various graphs including bar graphs, picture graphs, pictographs, tally charts, tables and line plots. We will also study probably (chances/odd) and the logic compared to sheer chance related to probability.
Reading: We are continuing our study of non-fiction text including text features, connections, and comprehension.
Content: We are studying Economics focusing on the topics of bartering, scarcity, economic choice, goods, services, producers, consumer, natural, human and capital resources.
