We are finishing up our second opinion pieces. Students have been a little more independent this time and seem to be doing a great job! We have used this second piece to review A LOT. We have talked about paragraphs, capitalization, punctuation, revising, editing, etc, etc. We have done a lot of review on some of these skills that have become a little...relaxed in their writing.;) We will start our 3rd quarter writing prompt by the end of next week!
We are finishing up book clubs and will start working on non-fiction passages again over the next couple of weeks as their group finishes their book.
We are continuing to work on multiplication and division. This week we have talked about fact families and how finding the missing factor of a multiplication problem is the same as solving an division problem. BE SURE to keep working on facts at home!
Science/ Social Studies-
We are wrapping up talking about the 3 branches of government. Many students have become "Preamble Pros" and have done a great job at reciting the Preamble by heart! This week, we will shift gears and start talking about the sun!
