What we're learning this week
Language Arts: We are continuing our nonfiction research project this week! We will focus on organizing our paragraphs using text structures like sequence, cause & effect, or description. We will also use our research notes to start drafting our paragraphs. This projects has a due date of 4/28 and will be a major writing grade. In reading we will continue to strengthen our reading skills and strategies in testing situations.
Social Studies: We will begin our unit on business and economic growth in Texas. Our focus this week will be on vocabulary that will help us to understand concepts later in the unit like profit/loss, supply/demand, import/export, free enterprise, consumer, and producer. Your student will have all of the vocabulary for this unit in their notebooks by the end of the week.
