On Our Agenda for March:

ELA/Reading:  Students will read the second installation of Judy Blume’s Fudge series by reading Superfudge.  Our essential question for the reading is What are character traits? Our writing focus will be centered around the question How do we write strong formal essays? Our grammar work will continue on irregular verbs, and then on pronouns and possessive use.

Math: We have begun a comprehensive unit on fractions, with our essential question being How are fractions the same and different from whole numbers? We will cover equivalent fractions, comparing fractions, adding and subtracting fractions, improper fractions, and multiplying fractions by whole numbers.

Science: We are finishing our unit on ecosystems, so stay tuned for our Effects of Deforestation on the Amazon Rainforest paintings… Also, since March is Women’s History Month, we will work on projects to find out about the lives and discoveries of famous female scientists. Our essential questions are Who are the women who have shaped Science, and what are their contributions to the world?  How many famous female scientists can you name?

Social Studies: We are digging deeper into the Dutch rule of this state, and our essential question is How have the Dutch influenced the state we now live in? We will discover who Peter Stuyvesant was, the Patroon system, and what daily life for a child living in New Amsterdam was like.

 Religion: In this season of Lent, we will explore the essential question Why is the season of Lent important in the Catholic Faith? We will explore what we o during this time and will also read about the significance of Holy Week. We will also watch a few excerpts from the series The Bible.
