This week in Reading and Writing workshop…

We will be working on writing small moments about our Spring Break.  Students will be encouraged to write about a special small moment that happened during Spring Break, with a focus on zooming into details, including showing a character’s actions and emotions. Students will work on crafting a story with a beginning, middle, and end.  Students will also work towards moving independently through the writing process.


This week in Math…

We will wrap up our relating addition and subtraction unit. Dreambox has some great practice on these concepts. We will use problem-solving to show our addition and subtraction skills, and how we can relate one another to solve a problem and still get the same correct answer. We will ask ourselves these questions while problem-solving this week:

How do I decide which strategy to use when adding or subtracting numbers?

How can I use numbers and symbols to represent real-life situations?

How can I use number sentences to solve problems?


This week in Social Studies…

We will finish our conversation on Needs versus Wants as we move into our discussion on Good and Services.  We will discuss how people in our community provide the goods and services we need to live every day.


This week in Science…

We will be learning about Birds! This will help us prepare for our Project Based Learning activity! We will learn about the external characteristics of birds, movement, food, and habitat as well as their life cycle!

Life Skill of the Week:  Perseverance – to never give up.
