Here is a new document detailing the student work bringing us up to spring break. This includes all of the videos, assignments, and resources for the next week and a half. Please note that students must visit the Liebes/Kenney 2020 Google Classroom EVERY DAY for any announcements and to check in with the daily question. I have also put a link to a parent letter explaining everything in more detail. If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Resource for Parents:
Look at all we learn:
We follow the Teacher’s College Reader's Workshop model. It is a way of authentically teaching students the skills needed to be a successful reader. The skills are taught using texts that are the “just right” level for each young reader.
Unit 1: Interpreting Characters
Unit 2: Purposeful Reading of Nonfiction
Additional Unit: Interpretation Book Clubs
Unit 3: Reading History: The American Revolution
Unit 4: Historical Fiction Clubs
We are currently working on unit 4: Historical Fiction Book Clubs.
Students will learn to read analytically, considering how the setting of the story affects the characters within the story. Students will also practice important skills such as summarizing, citing text evidence, and inferencing. Though we begin this unit learning remotely, we will still be able to have rich discussions about fantastic texts!
We also use Teacher’s College Writing Workshop as part of our program. Students learn to think like authors and write with independence. They write narratives, opinion pieces, and essays. Along the way, they learn organizational skills, practice conventions, and become proficient in the entire writing process.
Unit 1: Realistic Fiction
Unit 2: Personal and Persuasive Essays
Unit 4: The Literary Essay
Unit 3: Bringing History to Life
We are working on an additional unit: Writing about Reading. Students will think deeply about texts they have read, formulating their own ideas and opinions. Students will also be able to use text evidence to support their ideas.
Cover many topics:
addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division
fractions and decimals

In science, students are immersed in projects and experiments to develop not only content knowledge, but important problem solving skills as well. During each unit, students will build their understanding of the topic through inquiries and research. They will then work cooperatively in a group to solve a real world problem.
Similar to the science program, our social studies curriculum is hands on and project based. The work is interactive and places more responsibility on the student to come up with questions and independently (or in cooperative group) seek the answers.
