As things are changing and we are shifting to digital learning for the time being, I wanted to make sure everyone was on the same page with what units of study we are on. If you have any questions or need anything at all, please don't hesitate to reach out via Class Dojo or through email at salanid@pwcs.edu.

 I am happy to help in any way that I can! 

Math - Number sense, place value, addition and subtraction
This unit includes: reading and writing numbers with 6 digits, rounding numbers 9,999 or less (rounding to the tens, hundreds, and thousands place), adding and subtracting numbers 9,999 or less, counting money up to $5.00, and making change up to $5.00. 

Reading- We are currently on our 45 day plan which is a review of all concepts that have been taught.
This includes both fiction and nonfiction texts. Within those texts students are to make predictions, summarize, find the main idea and details, summarize plot events, and make inferences. 

Writing - We were in the process of creating a research project. From there we were moving onto opinion writing. 

Social Studies- We were focusing on the ancient civilization of China and Egypt. 

Science - We were focused on ecosystems and the different components and moving onto soil.
