Reading Unit of Study
We will be using our inferencing skills to help us wonder about stories and providing evidence for our thinking.

Writing Unit of Study
The children are finishing up their non-fiction books and many have shared their published pieces.  Our next unit of focus is poetry.  The children will be immersed in poetry and learn the importance of line breaks, similes, onomatopoeia, descriptive language to help a reader visualize, shapes of poems, voice poems, to name a few.

We are now returning to Eureka Math, Module 7  to practice money.
