We have been working hard for the last couple weeks on our persuasive writing unit. We have...
selected a topic
thought about our audience
recorded reasons to support our thesis
provided evidence to support our reasons
and... we are now drafting!
We have continued learning about animals and plants. We finished working on animal and plant life cycles. Now we are learning about traits passed on from our parents and natural selection. What helps you survive?
Ask your child about the giraffe? What did we learn about?
We are still working on our realistic fiction reading groups. Most of the groups have finished their books. During this unit we have learned about
similies & metaphors
and summarizing and retelling of stories.
Next week we are going to study character traits, growth, change, and cause and effect. We also just finished the BFG in class last week. Ask your students about the story!
