Quarter 2 Week 8

Don't forget that our field trip to the Az science center is this Friday! Please pack a labeled brown paper bag lunch and a disposable water bottle for your child. I do not encourage sending money with your child, but if you do please keep it to $15 or less.

Language Arts:
This week in Language arts we will be working on our Short Story in the Realistic Fiction genre. The class will be assigned our new poem this week, Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.

We will continue to learn about money this week. There will be a short quiz on Wednesday after math groups.

This week in Science we will continue our unit on the nervous system.  We will spend considerable time going over the pathway a signal travels with a movement activity.  We will also discuss the three main parts of the brain!

This week in history we will learn about Mount Vesuvius and the city of Pompeii! It will help us get some background information before we head to our field trip at the Pompeii Exhibit. We will also be doing mini plays in class to learn more about Roman culture.
