April began with a lovely Spring Break! As we return, we will continue our reading and writing focus on persuasive writing and an author study. Each classroom will be doing a study of our favorite authors. We will spend time reviewing skills in preparation for the CRCT. Please have your child practice online as often as possible at home on www.myskillstutor.com or www.georgiaoas.org, both excellent resources for CRCT practice.
We will spend time in class each day reviewing math skills for the CRCT. We will continue to work on multiplication and division of decimals as well. We will also prepare for our year-end review.
In Science and Social Studies we will review for the CRCT. We will be concluding our study of Ecology in Science. In Social Studies, we will begin our study of the westward expansion of the United States and the changes brought about by the Industrial Revolution.
