What is happening in class….

Math- We will do 4.8-4.11 this week.  We will focus on measuring using feet, inches, centimeters, and explore using arrays.  Please keep practicing telling time at home.  

Reading –  We continue to put all of our nonfiction strategies to use and also determine the main idea of a paragraph or topic. 

Writing – We will write a book about what we are an expert so that we can make “How To” books.  Students have chosen a topic that involves movement (dance, soccer, planting a garden) and formulated a table of contents and are now writing chapters. 

Social Studies –  We will continue to research different native american tribes in the U.S. and learn how living in different regions affected their way of life. 

Science –  We will be observing how plates move by cutting out along the plate boundaries on a map.
