In Reading we are continuing with our Argument and Advocacy Unit in Reading. We are researching topics, collecting evidence and information to argue a side. Students have done extensive research and are now working on filling out their Graphic Organizers in order to start writing their argumentative essay about their topic.
In Writing we have started The Research-Based Argument Essay Unit. This goes well with our Reading Unit because we are researching topics that are important to us to argue a side/point of view. The students as I said above are working on filling out their graphic organizers to get their thoughts and facts together in order to begin writing about their topic.
In Math we finished Module 3, we will be reviewing this week from Modules1-3, then we will begin Module 4 after break.
We have now started our next Science Inquiry which is Chemical and Physical Changes.
In Second Step we are talking about revenge, how it causes more problems when we seek it, and how to find a way to deal with being angry over an issue.
Words Their Way: We have new spelling words this week.Feel free to call or email me with any questions or concerns throughout the year: email@example.com, ext. 155
