A Week of Learning:
Writing: We will continue to prewrite and draft personal narratives with a beginning, middle, and end. We will complete our district On-Demand Writing Assessment.
Spelling and Grammar: said, these, they, our, very, with, went
We will continue nouns by working with singular and plural forms.
Reading: Students will compare the plots of fiction stories written by the same author.
Math: Students will practice place value through a variety of problem solving activities. There will be some challenges for kids who are really solid on the concepts and some time for review for kids who still need more practice.
Science: Our focus this week is comparing how heat causes change in different materials. We will plan and conduct several experiments, and discover some surprising outcomes.
