This week, we will read the expository text, The Wind at Work by Gretchen Woelfle. With this story, we will work on cause and effect. We will also discuss how people harnessed the power of the wind several hundred years ago and how people harness the power of the wind today.
Our spelling pattern will focus on the prefix -re and the Greek roots (meter, chron, and ology).
In grammar, we will practice recognizing compound sentences and irregular plurals.
Think about how you might answer these questions on Friday's test.
