Reading-This week in reading we are focusing on continuing to build our independent reading stamina. While we are reading we want to think about how the beginning of the story, leads to the middle and then finally the result or ending of the story happens (fiction books).
Writing-During writing we will use the beginning, middle, and end reading skills we worked on and apply them to our narrative writing pieces. We also will be making our "hooks" or "bold beginnings" to our stories so that the reader is excited about what we have to say.
Social Studies-We will begin mapping out the regions and rivers of Georgia this week! This will lead into our Creek and Cherokee Unit where the students will understand why certain Native American tribes lived in certain regions and near rivers.
