Reading – We will begin to learn about reciprocal learning. The students will learn to take ownership of their work through collaborative teaching with their peers. We will be using non-fiction books to learn how to make predictions, clarify what we have read, create questions based on what we read and summarize our findings.
Writing – We will continue our non-fiction writing unit. Students will begin to organize their notes from the previous week into sub-headings.
Math – The students will begin to work on two and three-digit subtraction problems. They will also be using this skill in word problems. Please have your child(ren) review addition and subtraction facts.
Social Studies – In Social Studies, we will continue to learn about our oceans and continents. We will be able to identify all of the continents on a map and the oceans that surround it.
Science – We will continue learning about the Earth’s surface. We will distinguish rocks, sand and soil and learn about fossils as well.
