We have been very busy in room 128!
Math- We have finished our Fractions multiplication and division unit and are now reviewing area and perimeter before launching into volume.
Writing- We are working on a different type of narrative writing. After reading a story from one characters perspective we are learning how to re-write it from a different characters point of view.
Reading- Our book groups are wrapping up soon and we will be doing some MCAS prep in our ELA blocks.
Science- We are cruising through our Living Systems unit. We've had opportunities to work with live organisms like wheat plants, yeast, red worms and painted lady butterflies. We have one more investigation to complete and then we will be concluding the unit with an assessment before moving on to our final unit, Mixtures and Solutions. A pink study guide is coming home. It is a good idea to begin reviewing concepts for the unit test. Keep in mind that a few of the concepts at the end of the study guide have not yet been taught but will be in the next week or two. The test date has not yet been set but will be in the week or two after vacation.
