      Here's What We Are Learning during the Months of May & June:

     

    Reader's Workshop:

    This month, learners will conclude their third Unit of Study:  Character Study.  During this unit, students will learn how to describe a character by analyzing patterns of behavior.  Students will also learn how to follow a character's journey throughout a text, noticing how they change in response to plot events.  In addition, students will also learn how to identify the theme of a story.  

     

    Writer's Workshop:

    Learners will begin their last Unit of Study:  Fractured Fairytales.  During this fun and engaging unit students will write their own versions of their favorite fairytales! =)

    Math:

    This month's instructional focus will be on Geometry & Perimeter .  Please Note:  It is IMPERATIVE that students are studying their basic multiplication facts DAILY.  The goal is to have all facts memorized by Christmas Break.  Thank you! =)
