What are we learning next week?
Math- We will move into measurement conversion this week. We will look at how to change 300 centimeters into 3 meters and 3 feet into 36 inches. We will start with the metric system and then start looking at customary units by the end of the week. There is practice for this skill on IXL under “Units of Measurement”.
Reading- We will be focusing on context clues next week. Being able to use clues around a word to figure out its meaning is such a necessary reading skill! This helps students comprehend what they are reading and make inferences. (Of course, this is also a good test taking skill to have up your sleeve!)
Writing- We are moving into opinion writing this week. This is always one of my favorite units because students have a lot of opinions! The key is finding evidence and research to back up those opinions! We will start the week by just looking at some types of opinion writing (book and movie reviews, advertisements, articles, etc) and then study some pieces to see how author’s use facts to support their points of view!
Social Studies- We are continuing to study World War II. This week we will specifically look at V-E day, the U.S.’s decision to drop the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and V-J day. We will also look at what Americans were doing during the war and study Rosie the Riveter.
Please let me know if you have any questions about what we are learning or events coming up!
