A Week of Learning:
Reading: We will be studying author’s craft. We will be stalking how good authors write to improve our craft.
Writing: Students will begin learning to write imaginative fiction. We will be using features of fantasy writing and revising for a strong ending.
Spelling and Grammar: ask, brother, didn’t, four, keep, much, seven, try
After Thanksgiving break we will finish up our verb study by looking at verb tenses: past, present, and future.
Science: We use magnets in so many things! This week, students will discover how we use magnets in our everyday life. We will see how opposite poles attract and the same poles repel. We will also get a look at how the magnetic field looks.
Math: When we return from the Thanksgiving break we will continue our study of time. We’ll also review all measurement that we have studied so far (inch, foot, yard, cm, mm, meter) and have a measurement assessment at the end of the week.
Bits and Pieces:

We will study different cultures soon (Dec) with an emphasis on holidays. If you would like to share your families’ culture with the class, please let me know! I will create time for you to come in and teach us. What would be super enjoyable is for the students to see traditional clothing, try bite sized food/treats (no nuts), see artifacts/objects, play traditional games, listen to music, experience something authentic, etc.
Think about it and please let me know!!
