In reading, we will be focusing on the plot of the story-beginning, middle & end as well as problem/solution.
We are finishing up Fractions in math and will be beginning our unit on Time. Students will tell time to the hour and half-hour using a digital and analog clock. We will also be learning about am/pm and the concept of a minute vs. hour.
After completing our Famous American projects, our next Science unit is Matter! We will be learning about the 3 states of matter (solid, liquid and gas) and doing experiments. We will also explore how some substances dissolve in water.
