What are we learning this week?
English Language Arts (ELA):
We will continue to learn more about characters, setting and plot. We’ll also dig deeper into using sequencing skills when summarizing plot events. The students are really enjoying the story, “Because of Winn-Dixie.”
Our metric unit wraps up early in the week. Next, we will move onto finding perimeter and area. Geometry will follow.
Electricity tests can be found in Monday’s brown folder. This week we’ll be learning more about ecosystems. We’ll also learn about lentic and lotic waters. On Thursday, we’ll make an Ecosystem in a Pan.
We’re taking a break for now!
