Our focus this year centers around character study, using text features & story elements to determine importance, using text structure to build comprehension, reading to learn, experiencing stories from diverse cultures, and exploring a variety of texts.


We will study the craft and style of authors, expand our work on narrative writing, work with procedural writing, share what we learn through research, persuade through opinion writing, compose short stories, and use the writing process.


Our first unit looks at how habitats help plants and animals meet their basic survival needs. In our weather and climate unit, we explore how weather impacts living things. Our last unit on forces helps us understand what makes things move.

Social Studies

Our civics unit investigates how citizens voice their ideas respectfully even in times of conflict. Our geography unit explores how and why individuals and communities manage and modify their physical environments. We also learn basic mapping skills. The economic units addresses how we make choices and decisions to balance needs and wants. The history strand explores why communities change over time.
