Reading- We are wrapping up our unit on “Understanding Characters.” We will finish our Because of Winn-Dixie Book. This week we will focus on developing theories and anyalizing decisions our characters have made. Then we will notice and reflect on how our characters have changed throughout the story.


Writing- Writing and food are always a good combination. This week we used “OREO” to remember how an essay is drafting this week.

  • -       O-Opinion is stated with the big idea
