This week, we will read the biography The Dancing Bird of Paradise by Renee S. Sanford. With this story, we will practice making inferences. We will discuss why Haruno travels to Japan and how she helps preserves the heritage of her people while they are living in the internment camps?
We will wrap up our persuasive writing piece. Students will complete their final drafts and they will be posted in the hallway.
We will continue talking about our personal heritage and how we are connected to it. Students will be assigned a heritage project toward the end of the week. This project will consist of many parts and each part will have its own due date. Be on the lookout for those instruction to come home!
In grammar, we will review declarative, imperative, interrogative, and exclamatory sentences. We will talk about the difference between an adverb and an adjective and how to recognize each one.
Our spelling pattern will focus on the prefixes -un and -en.
