    Reader's Workshop:

    This month, learners will conclude their first unit of study and begin their second unit of study:  Mystery, Foundational Units in Disguise.  During this unit, students will learn how to use clues to drive predictions.  Students will also learn how to analyze character behavior and solve mysteries related to plots.  

    Writer's Workshop:

    Learners will publish their Personal Narratives and begin working on their second unit of study:  Opinion Writing.  During this unit, students will learn how to develop an opinion essay by using a thesis statement and reasons to support their opinion.  Students will learn how to conduct research on their topic and how to include this information in their essay.  Students will also learn how to use transitional words and phrases to connect their ideas. 

    Math:

    This month's instructional focus will be on multiplication & division within 100.  Students will begin moving away from visual models, utilizing mental math strategies instead.  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! =)

    The following units will be covered this month:

    • Topic 4:  Use Multiplication to Divide: Division Facts
