Topics of Study


We are discussing realistic fiction and will begin reading our new class novel, "Red Kayak" to guide us in our discussion.

Students are currently working on a comparative essay discussing similarities and differences between "The Watsons Go To Birmingham--1963" novel and the movie. Students will move into writing realistic fictional narratives during our realistic fiction reading unit.

We are currently in Unit 7 of the Everyday Math program where we are studying hierarchy of quadrilaterals and triangles, tables, polygons, and fractional data.

Science/Social Studies
We are working hard to complete our Social Studies project on the Westward Expansion. Students have been researching a sub topic of the Westward Expansion, like the Gold Rush or Lewis and Clark and create a book of their compiled research. We will be starting our pilot of the new science program on solids.
