Reading — We're midway through our genres study, having examined fiction, nonfiction, and drama. We'll tackle folktales, myths, and legends this week before examining poetry and biographies.
Writing — We've looked at the unique text structures and elements for these and tried our hand at writing own fiction, nonfiction and dramas. We've also worked to strengthen our basic writing conventions and understanding of the parts of speech. We'll continue to work on grammar and punctuation as well as explore figurative language.
Math — We're well into place value and decimals and will be moving onto adding and subtracting with place value and decimals.
Social studies — We're beginning to look at the first people in North America and Texas.
Science — We've finished our initial inquiry and investigations unit and are shifting to matter and energy.
