Social Studies: We discussed symbols of the United States. We also learned about a couple of good citizens found throughout history. We talked about MLK Jr. and how he changed people's minds by his peaceful words, not by using violence.
Reading:We reviewed short vowels i, o, and e, and have been working on the -ick. -ock, and -eck word families. We are working on different blends. When students see these blends they should immediately know what sound they make, and that should help them sound out the rest of the word. We talked about the main idea and details of different nonfiction stories that we read. We worked on putting things in order to retell a story or event that happened.
Writing: We are working on our All about books. We learned how to add special features to our books like: labels, table of contents, captions, headings, maps, and closeups. We also learned how to use comparisons in our writing. Next week we will be working on editing our final pieces.
