Next week in reading students will be learning about the characteristics of traditional literature. We will be reading fairytales, folktales, myths, and fables.


In math we are currently learning about measurement. This includes measuring time, liquid volume, and mass. When discussing liquid volume we will be focusing on the difference between a liter and a milliliter. When looking at mass we will be using grams and kilograms. 


Next week we are going to begin writing adaptations of fairytales. Students are choosing from either The Little Red Riding Hood or The Three Billy Goats Gruff. This week we have been studying different adaptations of fairytales to get some ideas of ways that we could adapt our own.

Social Studies

Students are currently learning about economics in social studies. Next week will will be learning about producers and consumers, supply and demand, and also cost-benefit analysis.
