THIS WEEK'S HIGHLIGHTS📌
We will continue moving through Chapter 4. Students will learn how to multiply improper fractions and mixed numbers.
Our reading focus for the next four weeks will shift to Notice & Note: Nonfiction. This unit begins with creating the questioning stance. Students will be asked to read with the following questions in mind:
What surprised me?
What did the author think I already knew?
What changed, challenged, or confirmed what I already knew?
"Reading with these Big Questions in mind encourages a critical, attentive stance and develops habits of mind that-if we can instill them in our students-may help them deal more attentively and intelligently with the nonfiction texts they will encounter throughout their lives."
This week we will begin proofreading our Personal Narrative unit. Students will proofread for commonly misspelled words and correct punctuation. We will also self-assess our work and confer with peers for feedback.
Our study of the American Revolution will continue this week! Students will examine the Loyalist, Patriot, and Neutralist perspectives, and consider each argument for or against declaring independence.
