Friday, April 8 - Mid-year report cards go out
April 11-15 - Spring Break
Monday, April 18 - Whale PBL Kick-off
With the end of PBL and the start of spring, we began three new units!
Writing: Powerful fiction - We are revisiting our narrative writing skills, exploring more nuanced master author craft moves and growing our writing stamina!
Reading: Fiction book clubs - We've discussed why do people have book clubs and how do you form book clubs. Next, we'll dive more into how to hold a book club, specifally how much to read, using evidence from the text and crafting opinions about authors' literary choices.
Science: Liquids - Students compared water, oil and corn syrup, making observations and using words to describe the differences in each substance.
In other news: If anyone has any specific requests about what they would like to see or read about in the newsletter, I am open to suggestions. It would be helpful for me to craft my newsletters so that they are most helpful and informative for you. Let me know. Thanks!
