What is happening this week in Room 214

Reading Workshop:  Last week we read multiple books on one topic.  We looked at how we can add on to a topic and also how we could find things that related in texts, even if it was not glaringly obvious.  How can you relate a  section of how lions mark their territories to how they hunt for food.  We will continue this work- building on our partners post-its and also practicing retelling nonfiction text.

 

Writing Workshop:  We are continuing to publish our expository books.  We are writing through an editing lens and making sure we are remembering our grammar, punctuation and spelling.  Students will receive new spelling words on Monday as well. We will return to scientific writing once we finish with our expository books.

Math:  This week we will cover lessons 5.3-5.6.  We will be working with money and practicing making exact change and also giving change.  Extra practice giving and receiving money at home is very helpful.

Science:  Last week we started our states of matter science unit.  We did an investigation of solid objects and discussed properties. This week we will investigate liquids and gases.
