Math/Science News

This week in science, students will begin their study of States of Matter: gas, solids, liquids. We start our inquiry with asking what is matter vs non-matter. Matter is anything that takes up space and has weight! Later in the week, students dig deeper, seeking to answer why types of matter look and act so differently; for example, water is very different from a table. In math, students are engaging in a fun, mini unit on odd and even numbers, a perfect fit for a brief week! How do we determine in a number is even or odd, no matter how large the number?

ELA/Social Studies News

This week in ELA, students finish their work on their creative writing project about monsters and see if they can match the monsters to the descriptions! In Guided Reading Students are reading Fiction Texts and focusing on the Comprehension Skill of Sequencing Events. Students rotate through “The Daily Five” stations of reading to self, word work, writing, listening to reading, and working in a small group with the teacher. Students will work to study the connection between illustrations and words in stories and books. In Social Studies, will read "Grace For President" and discuss and imagine the life of a president. They will continue building onto their new unit about the branches of government!
