Language Arts:
In writer’s workshop, we are finishing up our research and the kids are getting ready to start creating their e-books!!  In Reader’s Workshop we continue to work on our reading skills and applying our knowledge to understand what we are reading.  We are also enjoying our learning around nonfiction text features.  We are learning to use them in our reading and how to incorporate them into our own nonfiction writing.

Social Studies:
We are nearing the end of our Economics study and the kids are loving it!  All students brought a review home to study from in preparation for the test on Wednesday!

Soon we will begin our next exciting science unit on Plants.  This is especially exciting as we will incorporate a lot of the knowledge we have gained from our Tower Garden project!

***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!
