Bringing us up to date

Pictures to come....

We finished our biographies and I have videotaped several.  I will post those as soon as I can.  We finished working on persuasive writing by writing about which Monarch book was our favorite and of course, why.  We are now working on determining importance in Non Fiction, taking notes, and paraphrasing in our words.  This is in preparation for our unit on expository writing.

We have been learning about Traditional Literature:  folktales, fairy tales, fables, and myths.  We have learned the characteristics of each and then will be comparing and contrasting features.

In math we finished up learning about fractions and are now in our measurement unit.

More to to come....
