Social Studies- We are going to continue exploring Earth. Ask your child about all of the different landforms they learned.


Writing- We will publish How-To writing early in the week. Students will get to share on Wednesday and Thursday. If they would like to bring in supplies and do a demonstration to go with their How-To they can. They will have to do exactly what their paper says. We are working hard to make sure we are explaining everything. They can still share their writing even if they don't demonstrate it.


Word Work- There will be no WORD WORK next week.
