I hope everyone had a fun break. Here are a few things our class will be working on this week:
- We will continue working on our fractions unit and start discussing the concept of redistribution (sharing differently).
- We will continue to examine the causes of the Revolutionary War. We will learn about the French and Indian War and how that had a direct impact on the Colonists wanting to break away from Great Britain.
- We will be learning about several important African Americans in the Colonial Period and the impact they had on history.
- We will be looking at the concept of ‘theme’ and how that helps us understand writing better.
- We will continue reading ‘The One and Only Ivan’.
- We will continue to build our reading stamina.
- We will begin our next big writing unit: Non Fiction Writing.
