Reading : We're continuing right ahead with our non-fiction unit of study. This week, we'll learn specifically about maps, different types of print, the table of contents, the index, and the glossary.
Writing : The students did a great job writing descriptions of their bobble-head turtles. Look for a display in the hallway some time this week.
This week, the students are going to choose a piece, that they've been working on recently, to publish. Using this piece, we'll review many of the components to 'easy to read' writing.
Math : We're starting unit 7 this week. This unit focuses on geometry, specifically 2-d and 3-d shapes.
Social Studies : The students loved sharing their heritage/culture dolls and learning about each others' backgrounds. This week, we'll start learning even more about each others' backgrounds through presentations by 1-Bu family members.
Computers : Now that it's the third marking period, we start computers this week! We'll be going on Thursdays (in addition to library) for the rest of the year.
