Our reading time will be spent on the skills of reading comprehension, vocabulary, spelling, and grammar. We will also have writing lessons focused on short answers. Our reading block is from 11:00 to 12:25 and 1:15 to 1:45. This includes writing for thirty minutes ever day.
Our math block is in the morning. Math routines consist of problem solving, math discussions, writing about math, direction instruction and independent work.
Our focus in social studies is Montana History, map skills, and Native American Studies.
Students will almost always have a writing assignment going. I try to tie these assignments to either social studies or science. Students may also be writing during extension opportunities.
Science will include some work from our science book, some investigations, some stem work, and a spring science fair.
