ELA: We will focus on informational text this week. Our mentor text will be I Wonder Why Penguins Don’t Fly and Other Questions About Polar Lands. Along with a review of the purposes of text features, we will concentrate on determining the main idea of a paragraph or article and supporting details which tell more about the main idea. We will do this while learning about arctic animals and the polar lands of the Arctic and Antarctica. We will take this a step further in writing and write paragraphs about narwhals using information found in several articles.
MATH: We will finish Unit 3 this week. We will have our assessment mid-week and it will cover adding and subtracting 3-digit numbers, rounding numbers to 1,000 to the nearest 10 or 100, and perimeter. We have been working on these concepts for a few weeks and will review this week.
SCIENCE: We will complete our unit on Plants and the Environment. A study guide will be sent home on Wednesday and the test will be on Friday.
