Language Arts: Now that the NWEA is over, we'll once again have full access to our laptops. Yaa!! We'll continue typing our informational books so these pages can be glued into our hard cover books. From there, students will finish up the illustrations on their own. This week, we'll also use our "expert topics" to write a problem/solution paper. After we learn a bit more about the compare/contrast structure, we'll try our hand at writing this type of paper too.
In Reading, we'll continue working through our informational unit as we master another text structure...compare and contrast. Towards the end of the week, we'll begin reading some informational pieces that have a cause/effect structure.
Math: This week, we'll be finishing up our Fractions/Decimals unit in Math. I'll be handing out the review sheet on Tuesday, doing some more review on Wednesday and then we'll test on Thursday. Please spend some time reviewing these concepts with your child as well.
Social Studies: This week, we'll be starting our Government unit.
