This week in language arts, students will read the story Jalapeno Bagels. In this story Pablo must decide what food to bring into school for celebrating International Day. He struggles because he comes from a multi-cultural/racial family. Pablo's mother is Mexican and his father is Jewish. Ultimately, Pablo chooses a jalapeno bagel to bring in for International Day because he felt this was an appropriate mix of both.. In math, students will learn how to tell time to the nearest minute.
This week in language arts, students will continue with our theme Voyagers. Our story, Trapped by the Ice, is a true story about a perilous voyage to Antarctica. As our students read this story, we will continue to build on their vocabulary and comprehension skills. We will review how to monitor their reading by asking questions. Students will be asked to reread any section to help clarify any difficult information in words they did not understand. In math, students will work with metric units of capacity.
