Language Arts
·         In writer’s workshop, we began writing new short stories with our peers.  We’re focusing on creating a mood, building suspense, and using show, not tell.
·         We also learned about 1st, 2nd, and 3rd person point of view.
·         In readers’ workshop, we wrapped up our first guided reading books, which were nonfiction.  Next week we’ll begin reading novels in guided reading.

·         We continued working on our science fair research, wrote our bibliographies, and drafted our mission plan (which includes the procedure, hypothesis, materials, question, purpose, and variables).  Once the students receive their approved mission plan back, they will be able to begin testing their experiment.

Social Studies
·         This week we began reading books in small groups called: You Wouldn’t Want to be an American Colonist, You Wouldn’t Want to Sail with Christopher Columbus, and Roanoke: The Lost Colony.  As we work with our team to read these books, we’re creating Power Maps, which help us organize the new information we learn and identify the main ideas and important subtopics of the books.
