What are we learning this week?
English Language Arts (ELA): We will begin our Winter Writer’s Notebook this week! We’ll also practice close reading, nouns, verbs and adjectives and more with some Thanksgiving passages.
Math: The Chapter 6 division tests will come home in Monday folders. As you can see, the rigor of our math tests has increased. There are many multi-step word problems on these tests. We have already started our next unit on Patterns and Sequences. Math homework will look different on Monday and Tuesday night this week!
Science: We will dig deeper into the changing states of water!
