Reading: We are still have a focus on Non-Fiction Text Features this week. (captions, photographs, headings, sub headings, bold and italic text, and glossaries…..just to name a few) To connect this at home, if you find a newspaper article and is appropriate for your student to read, have them read it and either identify text features or create new text features that they could add to the article to enhance it.
Writing: We are finishing up our persuasive papers and when we return we will work on opinion papers.
Math: We are covering a mix of graphing and estimation this week. To practice this at home, give students a data table and have them create their choice of a graph with the information. For example you could make a data table that records favorite ice cream flavors. 4 people like chocolate, 12 people like vanilla, and 5 people like strawberry. To make it more of a challenge give the more data points in the table (ie. 8 ice cream choices instead of 3.)
Science: We started our objects in the sky unit last week. We will continue to study that during this short week as well. Objects in the sky includes: sun, earth, and moon and their relationship to each other.
