English Language Arts and Social Studies

During the 3rd marking period, the students will continue working with nonfiction.  They will research topics in order to build arguments and encourage rich thinking.  Also, they will be constructing an argumentative essay which requires them to form a claim about a topic of their choice and defend the claim using evidence and personal thoughts.  As usual throughout the marking period, the children need to be reading 20-30 minutes daily at home as well as to be making the weekly writing entries in their notebooks.

For social studies, the students will explore the early colonization of North America.  Notes are taken in class, definitions are kept in the notebook, and a study guide is offered to help prepare for the test.  Students are always encouraged to reread lessons if necessary as well as to read ahead in order to prepare for the class discussions.
