Welcome back!!  I hope everyone had a relaxing break. Thanks for sending in the postcards and pictures from your trips. It’s fun to see where everyone went.

We have started our How We Organize Ourselves unit. In science, we are focusing on how energy is transferred among the various components of an ecosystem and how there needs to be a balance in the system for it to work properly. In reading and writing, we’re reading and analyzing debatable topics–looking at what the claims are and if they have strong reasons and evidence. In reading we’ll actually have debates, and in writing, we’ll write a couple persuasive essays. In math, we’re continuing with fractions.

Please see the below posters to find information on our upcoming publishing party and Learning Comes Alive. All parents are invited!
