In Mrs. Groenveld's social studies class we will be studying early settlement in NJ.
In math class we will be starting our units on Fractions and Decimals. We will continue our mad-minute competition. Be sure to know all your multiplication facts!!!
In reading class we will continue our Historical Fiction unit. Students will continue to use their reading notebooks to journal, and write down their thoughts. Students will also continue to learn how to answer different types of questions from a reading passage. Students will practice these strategies.
In writing class we are continuing our Persuasive unit. Students have already written, and are in the middle of publishing, their persuasive piece on school uniforms. Our next published piece will be on getting a cat or a dog as a pet. Included in this persuasive piece, students will use evidence (facts from articles and books) to make their writing stronger. This skill has been learned in reading and will be re-emphasized during this writing unit. Students will continue to write Journal Entries and free write pieces in their writing journals.
