Historical Fiction Book Clubs

The students are really impressing me with their book club conversations! This will be our last week as we wrap up this unit. As students finish up their last books, they will be looking to find similarities and differences between the different books they have read. Not only will they be comparing events, they will also be comparing themes which is no easy task. If students want to bring in a special snack on Friday to celebrate the hard work they have done throughout this unit, that is fine with me! I'm looking forward to a great last week of book clubs!

Science

This week in science we will be finishing up Chapter 3. On Monday we will be learning about food chains and food webs. We will be reviewing on Tuesday and taking the test on Wednesday.
