The new science unit is on simple/ complex machines. Newton's laws of motion are explored. Students will be doing many activities and experiments to learn about the value of simple machines and how they make work easier.
In my homeroom, in reading, students are working together in book clubs and reading fiction and historical fiction. In writing we have completed a compare / contrast essay and are now writing realistic fiction Parents, even though we have moved to a new reading log format, please be sure to check on your child's reading. The new reading log only needs to be signed once a week, on Thursday, before it is turned in on Friday.
