ELA: We have a good start on our ELA standards for the third nine weeks. We are using a mentor text, Peter Pan, to ask and answer questions using text evidence, discuss character traits and motivation, use context clues to determine the meaning of unknown words, and write routinely. In writing workshop, we are going to be learning how to write an opinion piece effectively. Grammar will focus on a quick review of adjectives and adverbs as well as an introduction to comparative and superlative adjectives and adverbs. In addition to our standards, our grade level will also be working on test prep skills such as close reading and writing constructed and extended responses on a weekly basis. Our goal is for our students to feel prepared and at ease when the Milestones come around in April. Please continue to enforce nightly reading for there is a direct correlation between regular practice and success with standardized testing. As always, thank you for your continued support!
Math: This week we are learning how multiplication and division are related. We are reviewing multiplication/division fact families on Tuesday and the rest of the week will be spent on unknown numbers in multiplication/division number sentences. (Example: __ x 5= 20, etc.)

Social Studies: This week we will begin a 3 week unit about the 13 colonies. Students will start learning the key reasons why the New England, Mid-Atlantic, and Southern colonies were founded (religious freedom and profit). Students will also compare and contrast colonial life in the New England, Mid-Atlantic, and Southern colonies (education, economy, and religion). In addition, students will describe colonial life in America from the perspectives of various people: large landowners, farmers, artisans, women, children, indentured servants, slaves, and American Indians.
