Reading

During the month of March, we will be reading a realistic fiction novel titled, “Flying Solo” by Ralph Fletcher. The text is about a class having a substitute teacher for the day that never shows up which means trouble. When the substitute for Mr. "Fab" Fabiano never shows up and his sixth-grade students are on their own, they set out to prove that they can run the class by themselves. With a little careful planning, it looks like they might just succeed. But when a fight breaks out between Bastian Fauvell and Rachel White over a classmate, Tommy Feathers, who died six months earlier, everything begins to fall apart. Can Rachel deal with the anxieties that plunged her into silence the day Tommy died? Inventive and uniquely constructed, "Flying Solo" follows Mr. Fab’s students hour by hour as they tackle the challenges of an unusual school day. The students will be having numerous discussions about making the right choices and the consequences of making the wrong ones.

Writing

During the month of March, the students will be working on an important Unit of Study titled “Persuasive Writing.” Persuasive writing is a sophisticated task. During this unit of study, the students will convince their audience to agree on a topic and take action. Effective persuasive writing states a clear opinion that uses reasons and examples to support the argument. Generally, a persuasive essay has the following:

· An introduction that provides an opinion statement and gets the audience

interested in their idea.

· A body that contains reasons and supporting evidence.

· A conclusion that restates the opinion and urges the reader to take action.

Science

During the month of March, the students will be learning about Animal Adaptations. We will learn about how the bodies of various animals help them to meet their needs. We will also learn about how the behaviors of animals help them to meet their needs as well as how living things in the past compare to living things of today.

Math

During the month of March, the students will work on an extensive unit on Fractions. During this unit, the students will be learning about numerators and denominators as well as comparing fractions. We will also be using our knowledge of fractions to find equivalent fractions for fractions with like and unlike denominators.

Social Studies

During the month of March, the students will be learning about “The Challenge of Independence.” We will learn about the role of New York in the development of the new nation. In addition, we will also study the Constitution as a framework along with the importance of The Bill of Rights.

Can Rachel deal with the anxieties that plunged her into silence the day Tommy died? Inventive and uniquely constructed, "Flying Solo" follows Mr. Fab’s students hour by hour as they tackle the challenges of an unusual school day. The students will be having numerous discussions about making the right choices and the consequences of making the wrong ones.

Writing

We will finish publishing our Responses to Literature this week and then we will be starting a new unit of study. During the month of March, the students will be working on an important Unit of Study titled “Persuasive Writing.” Persuasive writing is a sophisticated task. During this unit of study, the students will convince their audience to agree on a topic and take action. Effective persuasive writing states a clear opinion that uses reasons and examples to support the argument. Generally, a persuasive essay has the following:

· An introduction that provides an opinion statement and gets the audience

interested in their idea.

· A body that contains reasons and supporting evidence.

· A conclusion that restates the opinion and urges the reader to take action.

Science

During the month of March, the students will be learning about Animal Adaptations. We will learn about how the bodies of various animals help them to meet their needs. We will also learn about how the behaviors of animals help them to meet their needs as well as how living things in the past compare to living things of today.

Math

During the month of March, the students will work on an extensive unit on Fractions. During this unit, the students will be learning about numerators and denominators as well as comparing fractions. We will also be using our knowledge of fractions to find equivalent fractions for fractions with like and unlike denominators.

Social Studies

During the month of March, the students will be learning about the American Revolution. They will be learning about how the colonists resisted against the British, and they will look closely at the Declaration of Independence. They will also study New York’s role in the war and the impact that it had on the state.
