March has begun like a lamb! The children celebrated Read Across America Week with daily activities highlighted by our guest readers from the Montgomery Fire Department and the MHS Boys soccer team (later today!)

 In reading, we are moving onto studying characters and story elements. Children will notice all the elements of a fiction story as they follow a character and infer character’s feelings and motivations using text evidence to support their thinking. Next in writing, the children will be writing realistic fiction stories - narrative stories about realistic characters. The children will dream up a character like themselves, imagine problems that character might face and write edge of your seat, suspenseful stories that keep the reader interested!

 In math, we will continue with Geometry and Fractions (Ch 18,19 and 12 in our Math in Focus textbooks.) We will also review word problems using all the models we already know; number lines, number bonds, place value chart, bar models.

In science, the children were excited to complete our changes in Land Unit.  We discovered the impact of water and wind on land. Ask your child which changes land over time more, water or wind? Make sure they can provide reason to support their thinking! We will begin a social studies unit, economics, where children will think about what they want vs. what they need.
