Phonics- review

Reading: We will be reviewing skills already covered this year through Daily 5 groups and other activities. 

L.Arts:  We will review skills already covered this year. 

Writing Workshop: Students will review  and continue to write about realistic fiction. What is realistic fiction? Does it have to be something that could happen to someone? Who can the characters be? What should I include in my writing?

Math: Students will continue a week long project related to goods and services. They will have the opportunity to design a company name and product, create ads, and even a business card. On the final day we will share our ads/commercials.

Social Studies: Students will begin to learn about who are consumers and what it means to have scarcity. Review producers and consumers and how both sets of people are important to each other. How do consumers choices effect producers?

This trip will cost $2 per student. :)  We are asking that lunches be sent in a disposable bag with items that can be tossed or recycled after lunch. Thank you for your help! :)
