This Week’s Learning Focus:

Reading: Students will be learning more about non-fiction texts. We will focus on text features and their purposes. This month, students will begin a research project on countries, which they will need this background to aid in their research.
More to come about the research project!

Writing: With the start of a new year, comes the start of a new writing unit. The children will be learning more about information writing, specifically, about the kinds of information that scientists are apt to do. They will be conducting various experiments to create lab reports.

Spelling: There will not be a new spelling sort coming home this week. The students will be taking a couple of spelling assessments in class.
