Academic Focus

Reading: While applying reading skills, the students will focus and identify character traits to reinforce their comprehension.    

Writing: After the students finish publishing their personal essay, they will begin to write realistic fiction using the narrative structure.

Math: This month, we will begin our unit on division.

Spelling: The students will receive new spelling words every two weeks. They will review their pattern through several activities. During week two, new words will be introduced to further explore the pattern.

Science: The students will work on a research project about natural disasters.  Also, they will begin our new unit, Forces in Motion.
