Class Work and Goals
We are working on Native Americans and their contribution to New York State history. We will be investigating systems of government that exist to protect people and communities and how the Native Americans influenced the development of the United States democracy. We will be using close reading strategies to locate and answer specific details from a text.
We will continue to work on Non-Fiction texts and discuss non-fiction text features to determine what is important in a text and how to utilize these features to support our findings from our reading.
We are working on our narrative unit at this time. We have been working on writing elements such as focus, voice, descriptive writing, using powerful verbs and adjectives. We are discussing and demonstrating the difference between editing and revising in order to prepare to publish our first piece of writing in Fourth Grade.
