Reading: This week, reading and science were blended. As we finished up learning about the sun and light from the Earth Science, Physical Science and Life Science perspectives, we read several of Molly Bang’s books, including MY LIGHT (about the sun), LIVING SUNLIGHT (about photosynthesis), OCEAN SUNLIGHT (about photosynthesis, ocean style), and BURIED SUNLIGHT (about fossil fuels, carbon chains, and global warming).
Writing: Wrapping up those 3 Pig stories and heading towards some nonfiction writing.
Word Study: We have just enough weeks left in the trimester to cover all of the roots/bases that we need to cover. This week, we looked at sol- (solar, solstice, console) and mon- (monitor, monopoly, mono, monster).
Hahn Math: We are working hard to master the metric system of measurement and be fluent in conversions and problem solving that uses metric units.
Sixth Grade Math: Test this week. New unit is fractions.
Science: We are moving into Life Science. The lesson on photosynthesis was our bridge from light to life, as it were.
