What we learned in December!

In Reading we focused on themes in fiction texts. Students identified themes, and supported the the themes with evidence from the text.  

In Math we began working on addition and subtraction of fractions with unlike denominators. We used area models, pattern blocks, number lines, and other strategies to find equivalent fractions in order to add or subtract fractions. 

In Writing we began writing personal essays about topics that students feel strongly about. We used many different strategies to brainstorm good topics and details to write about. 

In Science we will continued to explore electricity and electric circuits, as well as magnetism. 

In Social Studies we continued to learn about the development of the government of the United States. We learned about the three branches of government and their roles and purpose in the United States.
