What's going on...
Reading: We've spent the last week discussing how multi-media can impact our understanding of information. For example: How do the pictures help you understand the text? How does music impact your understanding of videos? We are also testing on the students ability to compare/contrast two different pieces of writing on the same topic (for example, two pieces of writing about Valley Forge, one non-ficiton, one fiction).
Science: We will NOT be having another science test this year, but we will continue studying how and why the night sky changes.
Social Studies: This week we learned about different aspects of the Revolutionary War. What strategy did both sides take, when did the French become our ally etc. Students will receive a study sheet next Tuesday for a final test the last week of school. It will most likely be Monday if Field Day doesn't rain out the Friday before.
Language Arts: We wrote our on demand persuasive writing this week. I was very pleased with the time and effort students put into it! We also took a spelling test today. There will be no more spelling word lists this year!
