May is a busy month with a lot of exciting events going on! In reading, we are working in chapter book series clubs!  The children will work in small groups reading books within the same series. They then post their thoughts about character’s traits, feelings, problems, and how the character reacts to the problem. Then, they will compare all of these things across books in a series! Next, they use conversational prompts to discuss their thoughts and grow their conversational skills with their group.

We are Writing About Reading.  In this unit, children are writing letters about a character they love.  They will learn to expand these letters by adding their opinions about favorite parts, pictures, the title, or by retelling a part of the book that helps the reader understand their opinion. The final reading unit will be Bigger Books Mean Amping Up Reading Power and the final writing unit will be independent writing projects.

In math, we are finishing up our Money Unit (Chapter 14) and moving onto Graphing (Chapter 17).  In science, we are on our final unit, Living Things. In this unit we will grow plants, discover the pollination process and the role of the bee.
