Literature: The class has just finished reading James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl (one of my all time favorites) The students wrote in their reading journals about each chatper. They were loooking for metaphors, similies and the big ideas. We took time to discuuss their entires. They had some amazing ideas! I can't wait to discuss our next book BFG after FCAT testing.
• Writing:  March is our big writting month.  We have been preparing for the FCAT writes all year and I am confident that our class is going to do amazing! The test is March 24!
• Math: We're tackling fractions in math this unit.  We're using visual aides to help explain fractions and using our online math program to see how fun they can be.
Social Studies: History is hitting close to home right now in class. We're exploring the St. Augustine settlement this unit.  The students are very excited for their virtual field trip to Saint Augustine next week.  We will be covering everything Saint Augustine from the Castillo San Marcos to pirates and treasure!
