In Reading, we have been expanding our poetry skills by working on context clues and inferring when reading poems. This week, we will continue to explore poems as we deconstruct more complex poems to comprehend the big idea stanza by stanza. In Math, we completed our 5th Grade Geometry City and the hard work really paid off in the finished product! In Math, we will move into activating some prior knowledge for our next chapter and pre-assessing skills so that we are ready to dive right in when we get back from Spring Break. In Writing, students have been learning how to show inner thoughts of characters with their outward actions. This week, we will be focusing on World of Work as the students write their resumes and interview questionnaires.
