MATH : The focus has been on problem solving. The students may have a few samples of their work in the Wednesday folder.
In Writing, we are learning about poetry. Poetry is a kind of writing, usually in verse. Poetry verse is set out in short lines with words put together in rhythm or rhyme or both. Poetry is about a writer sharing with the reader an experience or strong feelings. Poems are written with words chosen for their sounds and beauty as well as their meaning.
Student will listen, memorize and learn different styles of poetry, such as Haiku, limericks and Free verse. We will have a poetry circle soon where the children may share some of their poems with the class. The poetry folders will be sent home after that event.
More information will be coming home on how you can support us.
This quarter in Science we will study States of Matter.
The next few weeks we will prepare for our fieldtrip to the Skating Rink. Watch for information in your Wednesday envelopes.
