During March, we will be focusing on the following subject area content:
Math - We are finishing up our unit on fractions, concentrating on dividing whole numbers by unit fractions and dividing unit fractions by whole numbers. We will then transfer this knowledge into our new unit on decimals. We will investigate how fractions and decimals relate to each other.
Reading- In reading we will be finishing up our exploration of realistic fictions stories. After we will switch gears again and focus on narrative non-fiction texts. In this unit students will examine the different structures associated in narrative non-fiction than those found in traditional non-narrative non-fiction. As always students are required to actively read for 40 minutes each night and keep track of their reading habits.
Writing- We will first wrap up our story writing and then move on to opinion writing. Here students will write persuasively to share their thoughts and feelings about a topic they have strong feelings for.
