ELA - Our Quarter 1 Unit is titled "New Beginnings." We will learn about immigration and the various perspectives of the immigrants. We will read 2 novels this quarter. Our informational text is title "If Your Name Was Changed at Ellis Island," and our fictional text is titled "The Orphan of Ellis Island." These are two great texts that the students really enjoy reading! This week we will continue reading "If Your Name Was Changed at Ellis Island," and we will continue to work on informational text skills.
Quarter 1 Essential Question. . .
*Why is it important to consider the point of view an event is being told from?
Throughout the unit students will consider . . .
*Why do people search for new beginnings in their life?
*How do immigrants respond and adapt to the challenges that they face on their journey and in their homeland?
*What impacts do immigrants have on past and present societies?
1st Quarter Skills include referring to details in the text to explain or infer meaning, comparing and contrasting points of view, finding the main idea and important details, integrating information from two or more texts on the same topic, summarizing, and understanding text structure.
Writing: The students are writing "Informational Books" on a natural disaster. If your child has any extra time at home it would be great for them to spend a little time researching their topic.
Math - Module 3: Multi-Digit Multiplication and Division
Students use place value understanding and visual representations to solve multiplication and division problems with multi digit numbers.
Formative quizzes are given after every topic within a module. It is important for students to stay on top of the math lessons by completing homework and their Zearn lessons. Duane Habecker videos are great for extra math help! Google his name and the lesson number!
Science: ESS1-1 Identify evidence from patterns in rock formations and fossils in rock layers to support an explanation for changes in landscape over time. This week students will learn why some volcanoes explode.
