February is a busy month!  We have a lot of exciting things happening in our classroom.

We are continuing on in our non-fiction reading and writing units. In reading, the children will read across many books on the same topic and compare and contrast information as they discuss and answer questions. They will also learn to deepen their conversational skills. In writing the children are learning to add non-fiction features which will help teach about their topic in an interesting way. Features we are learning include: partner sentences, questions, topic sentences, tips, hints, warnings, captions, labels, and more! Finally, we will revise and edit to prepare to publish and share our nonfiction books with our classmates.

In math, we will have begun Unit 4, Measurement. Click to read:

In social studies, we will complete our new social study studies, Communities. Next, in science, we will begin our Changes on Land Unit and discuss weathering and erosion.
