Reading: We will be comparing and contrasting stories and determining if certain stories are considered to be fables, folktales, or fairy tales. We will also be reading the story of Snow White to prepare for our Performing Arts trip on Wednesday.
Writing: We will continue working on writing reviews, both of books and performances. The students are writing a summary of the book or performance, then stating their opinion of the book or performance, and giving reasons to support that opinion.
Spelling: Next week will be reviewing different long vowel spelling patterns.
Math: We will be measuring items using more than one unit of measurement and comparing the measurements. We will focus on measuring items in inches and centimeters.
Science: We will continue to discuss the students' moon observations from the previous night as well as learn about shadows and seasonal changes. We observed how shadows change throughout the day last week (and how quickly they can disappear when clouds cover the sun!!) by tracing the students' shadows several times.
