Reading: This week we will continue our focus to informational text, specifically looking at text features and organization of informational text in articles.

Writing: We will continue our informational writing this week. We will look at the importance of adding in details of our own thinking to our papers, using dates, and writing powerful introductions and conclusions.

Math: We will work on the division of decimals before moving on to answering division word problems.

Social Studies: We will continue our focus on European Exploration of the New World. The students use their knowledge gained to add to their papers on exploration.
