Spooky week in 3C
Wednesday: Your children are allowed to wear their costumes on Wednesday, but please send an extra change of clothes. If they would prefer, they can bring their costume and change after lunch. Dressing up is not mandatory, it’s up to your child if they would like to participate. Please NO MASKS, NO WEAPONS and costumes should be school appropriate. I will send more information about the parade on wechat.
In reader’s workshop this week, students will discuss the difference between expository non-fiction and narrative non-fiction. As research on climate, we are reading expository non-fiction. This week, our readers will learn that biographies are an example of narrative non-fiction. Students will choose an interesting person or hero to research and summarize his/her life and create a timeline. Towards the end of the week, we will revisit skills to uncover difficult words in a text.
This week mathematicians will continue building their estimation skills by rounding. As the week moves on we will begin three digit subtraction using the standard algorithm supported by our place value chart.
How do natural events affect the environment? Students will take time to research about a natural disaster and share out their learning. Students will also collect weather data on a selected city of their choice.
As writers this week, students are continuing to draft within their nonfiction books. They will be growing in their awareness more and more by understanding how Nonfiction texts are structured and trying out some of these structures within their own writing.
