I hope everyone had a nice winter break. Tuesday starts the first day in the third grading period. In ELA our focus for this grading period will be on the mystery genre. As a class we will be reading The Great Cake Mystery and in reading groups students will also be reading a mystery book. Some other ELA topics we will be focusing on will be main idea/supporting details and context clues. Students will begin this week to learn how to write a multi paragraph essay. In math we will be spending the next two weeks learning about perimeter. During science we will continue to learn about the roles living things have in their environment. Lastly in social studies we will begin to learn how to read and use maps. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
