Our first writing activity of 2020 was setting a goal using one word. After determining a word that would be their focus, each student wrote about why they chose that word. Then they wrote about their action steps that will help them to achieve their goal. This week we also began learning the beginning basic strokes of cursive!
Social Studies: We are now learning about Native American regions. We are in the research phase now, and next we will compare and contrast the natural resources found in the regions and the daily lives of different tribes.
