LITERACY: Focus Skill- Summary
This week students learned about what makes a good summary. It should include key words, and main ideas. Summarizing texts and stories help us better understand what we read. Students explored various nonfiction texts about Martin Luther King Jr. Next week we will continue to practice summarizing.

MATH: We finished chapter 5, which was all about 2-digit subtraction. Chapter 6 we will apply what we already know about addition and subtraction to three digit numbers.

SCIENCE: Chapter 5 was a short one! We learned about environments and food chains. Next up in chapter 6 we will explore Earth’s resources. Look in your child’s take home folder for information about our 2nd Quarter project.
