What's going on...
Science - We're digging in to the biosphere this week and next. We'll be focusing mainly on food chains and food webs. There is a lot of vocabulary in this unit. Some of the new words we learned this week were: producer, consumer, herbivore, omnivore & carnivore.
Reading -This week we started our personal reading logs during our read to self time. On October 1st we will be using an at home reading calendar to help students keep track of their reading at home. These calendars will be turned in at the end of the month with a parent signature. Thank you for supporting this incredibly important homework!
Language Arts-This week we have been adding details to our personal narratives. We have done this with sketching a scene from our story, using our 5 senses, and adding the internal story (how we felt at the time). Students have also been adjusting to our writing time and what the expectations are. These are important to establish before we add spelling to our routine.
Social Studies-This week we have been learning about the three branches of government.
