301 News for the week

Hello Everyone,

***A reminder, please have students send in their recorders on Wednesday.

Here are a few things we will be working on this week.

Writing: We will continue researching and drafting our ALL ABOUT BOOKS. If you have the time available, please try and take your child the local public library so they can find a few more books about their topic.

Reading: In reading we will continue to analyze the features of nonfiction texts and discuss why authors choose to use different features in different texts. We will also continue to practice writing responses to questions about nonfiction texts.

Social Studies: We will reflect back on the Egypt unit and discuss:

  • What went well?
  • Was there anything you wanted to learn more about?
  • Is there anything from this unit that can inform our next social studies unit, Brazil?

Math: We will continue building our multiplication fluency by working on such concepts as partial product and the distributive property {ex. (2 x 5) + (2 x 5) = 4 x 5}.
