In reading workshop this week, readers will take a long look at the characters in their books and compare and contrast the similarities and differences in their personalities. Students will gather text evidence to have a discussion about their characters.
Writers will be wrapping up their learning around persuasive writing. We will go through the revising, editing and publishing process to prepare our speeches to share with others. Next week we will launch new learning around Literary Non-fiction!
Mathematicians will begin by comparing unit fractions. Using real-life examples and area models, students understand that, when comparing fractions, the whole must be the same size. Finally, students learn that redefining the whole can change the unit fraction that describes the shaded part.
Students are digging deeper into the “why” animals are endangered and how living things affect the environment. They will gather information and put it together to share out with their peers.
