We come to the end of the first week of school, and close out the month of August, which leads into Labor Day weekend. When we return on Tuesday, the students will have been settled into the routines of school.
With that, we will continue with the Launching Literacy introductory unit. After next week, we will move into Realistic Fiction as a unit of study along with a group rotation schedule. I will explain this in greater detail as we get closer to it.
Writing has the same format.
In science, we will do one more week of inquiry and the scientific method with a variety of activities. Today's activity involved comparing the flight of paper airplanes made with card stock vs. regular paper.
