Remember there is no school on Monday, March 28th.
In reading this week we will revisit both stories from this unit. We will focus on the skills of comparing and contrasting, making connections, identifying main idea and supporting details, noun suffixes, analyzing idioms and identifying multiple meaning words. In writing this week we will continue working on our compare and contrast paragraphs as well as begin a small unit on poetry. During our poetry unit we will be learning to write a cinquain and diamante.
In math this week we will learn about mass with grams and kilograms, we will also continue working on telling time and elapsed time. At the end of the week we will take a small quiz on time, capacity, and mass. Then Friday we will start learning about perimeter.
In science we are working on building our animal rescue device to rescue our tiger from the moat (it all goes with a little story).
