301 Week of 11/4/19

Hello Everyone,

This week we are stating several new units. It should be super exciting.

Reading: We are beginning our character unit. In this unit we will dive in to what motivates a character and how the helps to progress the plot of a book. Our read aloud for this unit will be Because of Winn-Dixie (one of may favorite novels to do with a class).

Writing: We are beginning our opinion/persuasive writing unit. This is a great unit in which we learn how to present our ideas to other people in a clear way.

Math: We are starting our unit on multiplication. In the beginning of this unit we will looking at multiplication in terms of ‘groups of…’. An example is that 3 groups of 6 is the same as 3 x 6.

Social Studies: We are looking at how landforms and natural resources helped to develop human communities and cultures.

Announcement: This Friday (11/8/19) we will be having a birthday celebration for those students who have birthdays in September, October, and November. If you are available to come in and help out we will be celebrating at 1:30pm.
