In 3rd quarter we will continue our work with asking and answering questions. We will move into using these skills with non-fiction as well as fiction. We will also spend time working on clarifying the meaning of words using pictures and words in text. We will end our quarter working on poetry. We will be looking for words in poetry that appeal to our senses and feelings. Finally, we will review finding the central message (lesson) in fiction stories.
During Writer’s Workshop this quarter we will spend a lot of our time learning more about non-fiction text features. We will be looking at examples of features in texts, writing about them, etc. We will also spend some time in poetry to go along with our reading block. We will then write an opinion piece about our favorite poem.
In 3rd quarter, we will work hard at learning about place value. We will work on discovering what 2-digit numbers mean and how to represent them. We will also spend a lot of time comparing numbers. At the end of the quarter, we will have a unit on geometry.
