Week of December 7, 2015

Reading- We will continue 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 finish drafting their non-fiction writing and work on creating a strong ending paragraph. They will revise and edit their work to add details.

Math- The students will continue to work on two and three-digit subtraction problems. They will also be using this skill in word problems. We will be having a test TOMORROW on subtraction.

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. We will also learn about the different landforms on each continent.

Science- We will continue learning about the Earth’s surface. We will distinguish rocks, sand and soil and learn about fossils as well.
