Learning Goals From This Week:
Social Studies: We wrapped up our Regions study this week with the West Region. The test will be on Monday. NEXT: Science, Force & Motion / Simple Machines!
Reading: We took a look at another Notice & Note Signpost strategy -- Memory Moment! The students really connected to each other over an excerpt from Hope Was Here by Joan Bauer. It left me with my own "memory moment".
Writing: We learned about credible resources, how to effectively search using keywords and what different domains are on the inter webs (.com, .net, .edu, .gov.).
