This week in
Reading: We have begun to work on wonderings while we are reading. Good readers use wondering to construct understanding while they are reading.

Writing: We are continuing to work on our realistic fiction stories. The students are digging deeper to develop their character and plot by adding more descriptive details.

Science:We are investigating air and weather! We have brainstormed our own information about what we already know about air. We will be putting on our lab coats and testing out our different theories about what air is and does in different situations.
