In reader’s workshop last week, students discussed the difference between expository non-fiction and narrative non-fiction. As we researched climate, we are read expository non-fiction. Our readers learned that biographies are an example of narrative non-fiction.
As writers last week, students are continued to draft within their nonfiction books. They have grown in their awareness more and more by understanding how Nonfiction texts are structured and trying out some of these structures within their own writing.
Last week as mathematicians we continued building estimation skills by rounding. As the week moved on we began three digit subtraction using the standard algorithm supported by our place value chart.
How do natural events affect the environment? Students have taken time to research about a natural disaster and share out their learning. Students have also collected weather data on a selected city of their choice.
