Mrs. Cormack's Class Newsletter
For the Week of May 20th-24th
What We Will Be Learning This Week.....
Reading: DRAMA! This week, we will learn all about drama! Students will understand how drama is punctuated in relation to narrative stories with dialogue that students are accustomed to reading. They will also understand that instead of using illustrations to enhance the story, drama calls upon live performers to use accents and gestures to bring the story to life. Monday-Tuesday, we will learn about the elements of a drama and how to read it. Wednesday-Friday, students will get to participate in Readers' Theaters and perform them for the class!
Writing: This week, we will write and respond to prompts, using the writing process. We will also complete our Write Source book, focusing on capitalization skills.
Social Studies: For our last week of Social Studies, we will use our textbook to finish our Economics Unit, focusing on "People at Work".
