Reading- We are focusing on reading non-fiction texts so we can practice identifying text features and using the information that they give us to help us comprehend what we are reading. We are also identifying the main idea, or topic, of non-fiction texts we read.
Writing- We are focusing on writing informational texts after completing research on chosen topics.
Math- We are finishing up the number sense unit which had a large focus on subtraction word problems. The concepts from this unit will continue to be woven into everyday instruction as they are vital in helping students grasp to form a conceptual mathematical understanding of number sense. Next, we will be focusing on measurement and estimation.
Social Studies: We are beginning our study on economics. The vocabulary words for the unit include wants, need, goods, services, producers, consumers, spend, and save.
