We are writing our first opinion piece as a class to learn the steps of writing an opinion piece! We are also stopping to learn about how to hook our readers, linking word, and how to support our opinion using examples.
We are back to meeting in our guided reading groups! And this week we are learning about the climax and falling action in a story and the sequence of events in a story!
We will take our math test tomorrow! Students brought home a study guide tonight. They have done very well with finding the area of the shape, however, finding the area of a shape with more than four sides AND that has missing lengths was a little bit of a doozy. We have decided to not test students on finding the missing lengths because it is not what the standard states. They will have to find the area of a shape with more than 4 sides but they have shown that they can handle that! ;)
We are still learning about economics and this week we will be talking about producers and consumers and supply and demand. Remember, if you are cleaning out any closets, drawers, candy cupboards (etc, etc) at home and have anything that can be donated to our school store, send it in! We would be happy to use it! (trinket sized toys, ear buds, and candy are the types of of things we're looking for! Nothing too fancy!)
