Wyrick's Wise Wonders

Reading, Writing, and Texas History

What's Happening This Week?

Reading: We are diving deep into characters this week. We will be analyzing character traits, feeling, problems, relationships, and how they change over time. Each day we spend time reading either independently or with a partner to increase our reading stamina. On Fridays, we turn the lights off and turn on lamps and strings of lights to read for a more extended period of time.

Writing: We are in the final lap of our Realistic Fiction writing piece. This week we will be finishing up editing before beginning our published piece. If you have any decorative paper that the class could have we would appreciate it.

Texas History: In Texas history we will begin learning about our local and state governmental systems. We will chart the municipal, country, and special districts. Then we will study the branches of the Texas state government.
