Science - Students are getting closer to the end of the Motion and Design Unit. Over the next two weeks they will investigate how adding a propeller changes the motion of their vehicle. They will also complete some "what happens if" investigations of their own. We will move into simple machines and end out the quarter with Case 21 assessments.
LA/Reading - We will continue to discuss character changes within their own read to self books as well as the read aloud. We are finishing up When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead. Students should be responding to the weekly blog question and responding to their peers. We have also started Poetry Friday!! Please continue to make sure your child is reading every night :)
Writing - These next two weeks we will wrap up our narrative pieces. We will focus on adding dazzling details and starting sentences with a verb. We will be doing some fun in class activities to practice how to write with emotion to REALLY show how someone is feeling. Final writing piece due Sept 22!
Report cards Sept 26!
