Writing - Nonfiction/Informational Writing.  Students will be researching and writing about a famous: artist, author, or inventor.
Reading - Advancements in Technology.  We will be learning about innovations over time and how they affect our lives.  This week, we will be studying Alexander Graham Bell.
Vocabulary - patent, sound waves, telegraph, established, revolutionary, distant
Spelling - (long vowel sounds) arrive, broke, celebrated, huge, June, telephone, whole
Grammar - Pronoun-antecedent agreement and punctuating dialogue
Poetry - "Celebrating Me".  Students will memorize and recite a poem in front of the class.  We will be working on using a loud, clear voice, eye-contact, and rhythm. Students will be graded on: voice/rhythm, memorization, posture/body movement, and eye-contact.
Reminder - Tomorrow (Tuesday) is our library day.  Please make sure your child has his/her library books to return.
