In the month of September, we will be studying figurative language, traditional literature, fictional stories, and poetry.  Our focus will be to summarize, explain themes, compare/contrast characters and the changes they go through as we discover the plot of the story.  We will also enjoy writing some poetry and imaginative stories.

We have started off the year with data collection. Much of the data that was collected was gathered through “getting to know you” activities. This data was then displayed in either dot plots or stem and leaf plots. We will spend the next few weeks learning about place value and being able to compare and order numbers. Towards the end of the month, we will start our unit on Fractions. We will begin by looking at the relationship between fractions and decimals.

We will be finishing our unit on Properties of Soil.  We will be moving on to measuring, comparing and contrasting the Properties of Matter (length, volume, mass, buoyancy, and magnetism), and the States of Matter (Solid, Liquid, Gas).

We are studying the geographical regions of Texas and interesting facts about the Coastal Plains, Mountain and Basin Regions,  Great Plains,and  Central Plains. After taking time to remember the heros of 9/11, we will study the first people to migrate into Texas.
