What we are learning Remotely:

ELA: We have started working on asking questions before, during, and after reading. Students that ask questions as they read are showing that they are thinking as they read. If students aren’t thinking as they read, they are not really reading.If remote learning is not too hectic for your family, please encourage your child to read each night in a just right text. 


Math: We have started learning about coordinate planes and graphing.  Students will be looking at how data can be represented using a coordinate plane. 


Social Studies: We are learning the three major theories of how the early Americans came to the Americas.


Science: We have started learning about living and nonliving factors in an ecosystem.  We will then begin learning more about all of the major ecosystems.
