What we're doing in math...
We are studying Measurement and Data. Students worked on measuring to the nearest inch and half inch. We studied polygons, and learned about the characteristics of quadrilaterals. Students also investigated finding the area and perimeter of polygons.  


What we're doing in science...
We have started our new unit Weather and Climate. The students are learning the "ingredients" of weather, different biomes and climates around the world, and severe weather.  They will then take this knowledge and create "hurricane houses" that they will build with the purpose of holding up in a hurricane.  

What we're doing in 
social studies...

In Social Studies, we have been studying the American Revolution and important events and people that lead to the revolution.
What we're doing in language arts...

In reading...

Students have been busy becoming experts in nonfiction reading. Students are focusing on how to talk about what we have read and finding the main idea and supporting details.

In writing...

we have moved into writing Expository Writing.  The students are researching animals with partnerships and will turn their information into a non fiction report.
