In reading we will be concentrating on realistic fiction and story elements. This includes identifying setting, characters, and plot. Word identification and meaning and fluency are ongoing skills. We also will be covering biographies.
In writing our focus is on ideas and voice. Spelling will be weekly. You will receive a copy of the spelling and vocabulary lists every Monday. Please work with your child nightly to review and master these words and word patterns.
In social studies we begin with geography skills and then move to ancient civilizations (Native Americans) and then European explorers.
