Happy March! Students are currently reading Charlotte's Web by E.B. White. Students are focusing on the characters in this book. They are looking into the characters thoughts, feelings and actions. Students are looking into the reasons why the characters are experiencing problems and how they resolve their problems. They will also be reading biographies about famous people this month.
In Writing, students are working on realistic fiction stories. They are developing their beginning by including a good opening, characters and a setting. They are also including a problem and events in their middle. In the end, students are including a big moment and a resolution to the problem.
