Wow. Finishing up report cards for the second quarter. It is hard to believe that the school year is about half way through. We will continue to read fiction and non-fiction text; really looking at the text for vocabulary and comprehension skills. The students will continue to practice answering text-dependent questions; providing an answer with evidence to prove its accuracy. In writing, the students have just finished writing opinion pieces where they had to provide an opinion, give their reasons for the opinion and then to add detail to their reasons. We will now begin a unit on poetry. In math, we are working on fractions, line plots and measurement. I look forward to the third quarter and all the learning that will take place in that time.
