Watchout! Students are brushing up on their arguing skills!
In 5th grade we have wrapped up our Narrative writing unit and are now working on Argumentative Essays. Over the next several weeks students will practice supporting their ideas with sound reasons and relevant examples!
In Reading we are focusing on how to get the most out of nonfiction texts. When analyzing nonfiction, students will be identifying and discussing a variety of text structures. Nonfiction is amazing because main ideas and supporting details, cause and effect relationships, chronological sequencing and a variety of graphic features can all be found on a single page!
