Reading- students have been working in book clubs to read books on their independent level. Students named their book clubs and meet a few times a week to have strong discussions about their book.
Math- Students have been working hard to learn division. Ask your child to explain the partial quotients method to you.
Social Studies-We are learning about the discovery of North America as well as the formation of the 13 colonies. Ask your child what the phrase no taxation without representation means and what happened at the Boston Tea Party.
Writing- Students are working on our realistic fiction pieces and have created characters that have strong external and internal characteristics. We can't wait to publish our pieces!
