Language Arts:

         We are learning about finding the main idea of an article.

When we finish the unit we will look at character point of view.

 

Math:

We will be learning about addition with regrouping, subtraction with borrowing, equalities, solving equations with unknowns, solving word problems with unknowns, and revisiting money and telling time.

        

Science:

This week will be filled with science experiments that show what happens when solids and liquids are introduced to different temperatures.
