Language Arts:
We are discovering how topic sentences help us create a summary in nonfiction texts. In writing, students are starting a new opinion essay about their favorite place. Now that students have mastered the structure of an essay, we will focus on the craft of our essays and improving how we talk about our opinion.
Social Studies:
Students are learning about the role that Texas played in the Civil War.
