Language Arts:
In writer’s workshop, we are drafting and editing our persuasive writing. We are reading opinion articles in class to understand how an author works to convince others of what he/she wants them to think, feel, believe, or do.  In reader's workshop, we are learning to take charge of our own comprehension.  Finally, in our independent reading time, we are using all of our reading skills to help us improve our reading stamina.  We are working hard!

Social Studies:
We are still busy understanding how our governments works and how exciting the regions of our country are!

Our science unit is on Energy.  We are learning about potential and kinetic energy and what makes energy change.  We are also going to study the various forms of energy.

***Often we post things on our class SeeSaw accounts as well on our Google Classroom accounts.  Ask your child to show you what he/she has done so far!
