Subject Areas/Content Focus

Language Arts

Reading

We continue to examine and evaluate perspective, point of view, and theme.

Language Arts

Writing

The students are making refinements in writing. For example, they wrote a piece comparing and contrasting two versions of the Three Little Pigs. It's important to substantiate our reasoning through text evidence.

Math - Lopez 

The students utilize enVision in solving real-world equations. In our learning community, the kids engage, explore, explain, elaborate, and evaluate different curriculum content.

Science
We continue to expand our knowledge base. For example, we are learning about wavelength and amplitude.

Social Studies                                                          It's a year of exploration! From the Anasazi to Statehood, we take a look back into the great migration across our majestic state of Colorado.

Reading Resources and Technology Apps

As a parent, I’m always looking for reading resources. When your nights are busy, it’s a great time to view a story online. An actor from the actor’s guild reads a story out loud.  

After your child has finished reading a fantastic book, please encourage them to write a summary and review. They can read other students who wrote about their favorite novels.
