Writing- The students will explore opinion and informational writing. We are doing writing together as much as possible in order to ensure the students success on the end of the year writing assessment.

**Writing focus/goal for each nine-weeks. We will be reviewing with students the process needed to properly “unpack” the prompt, plan, draft, revise and edit a writing task. In an effort to further support these developing skills, students will be given support and guidance for the first graded writing task of the nine weeks. This support and guidance could result in higher grades than students are able to achieve on their own. We will continue to model the process weekly, construct well-written examples in class as a whole group, with-peers and individually. For the remainder of the grading period, students will be expected to complete prompts by moving through the process independently.

Language: The students will determine where commas should be placed in addresses and dialogue.

Math- The students will measure objects to the nearest whole, half, and quarter inch, interpret and create line plots using measurement, and solve two-step word problems using the four operations (+,-,x, division). IXL practice – B.3, U.8, U.9, M.9
