Language Arts:

Students have been working on fiction/creative writing and using the writing process to edit and revise drafts. Some classes are working on small moments and keyboarding. During Daily 5, students are working on parts of speech, identifying topic sentences and main ideas and word study. Our current read aloud books are The Magician’s Elephant by Kate DiCamillo, Professor Tuesday, by Jeffrey Schatzer and Cinderella Stories from around the world.

Math: The 2-3 students continue to work on their math facts, and fractions which is applied to money and time, regrouping problems and identifying the clue words in story problems in order to solve which they demonstrate understanding through pictures and step by step problems.

Social Studies:

We are focusing on immigration and the history of the Erie Canal and the economic impact and how the immigrants changed history and relationships with Native Americans of Michigan. We will be moving forward with the types of resources that Michigan and the Great Lakes provide.  We continue to review about rules and how they make us safe by tying in the three branches of government.

Science: Force and motion is the basis of our science unit. We are integrating  this with Technology classes as the students build boats and test them. Students are learning what the term, “work” means as well as, “push, pull, gravity and buoyancy”. We visited the Ann Arbor Hands On Museum to attend a Science Works program on Force & Simple Machines. It was a great time had by all! Our next unit will be learning about magnetism and how it ties into force.
