Welcome back after a nice, long weekend! This is going to be a full week of school for the kids. In reading we will start our new story called Thank You, M'am by Langston Hughes. We are going to go over character traits, internal and external conflicts, along with the elements of a short story.
In language, we are going to work on the rules for capitalization. We are also going to work with the able/ible suffix.
In writing, we are working on our explanatory piece. We are researching two sources to back up our thesis statements about either the pros of technology or the cons of technology.
Finally, we are going to start our small groups this week, working on the elements of a story; the characters, the setting, and the plot.
