We are continuing our study of nonfiction text features. We have been clarifying tricky words and asking questions. We have also been taking a closer look at the text to find key details to support our thinking.
Writing: Friendly Letters & Opinion Writing
We wrote a letter to convince others to read one of our favorite books. Our letters included an introduction, our opinion, at least two reasons to support our opinion, and a conclusion. We ended the week with writing a friendly letter to someone that we are thankful for.
Math: Two Digit Addition with Regrouping
We have come to the end of our math chapter about two digit addition. A study guide went home on Thursday, and we will be taking our next math test on Monday.
This week we continued to study land changes, and we focused on learning about landslides. After learning about what a landslide is, we focused on the question of: How can we help to prevent erosion that is caused by a landslide? We used models made from a cornmeal mix and then we created a rain storm to see if our designs would keep the land from washing away.
