News for the Week of 12/2/19
What we’re learning:
Math – Multiplication comparisons and we will continue to focus on the same strategies (area model, distributive property, algorithm) but with larger numbers.
Reading – We are continuing with non-fiction text and will focus on referring to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text. Students will explain how visuals (text features) support a text and help readers better understand the subject.
Writing – We are going to analyze examples of opinion writing and determine the characteristics of good writing.
Grammar – We will be learning about complete and compound subjects and predicates.
Science – Students will differentiate between the states of water and how they relate to the water cycle.
