What will I learn?
Reading & Language Arts
We will make inferences and determine themes in fiction. We will determine point-of-view and find evidence for character traits. We will use context clues to find the meaning of unknown
words and classify texts by their structure. We will write narrative, opinion and expository pieces.
We will work with place value up to 100,000. We will multiply two 2-digit numbers and divide with 1-digit divisors and multi-digit dividends using partial products (not the standard algorithm).
We will do extensive work with fractions and decimals, as well as area and perimeter and geometry.
We’ll explore the relationship between Earth and moon, rocks and minerals, and animal adaptions as well as force and motion including magnetism and electricity. For social studies, we’ll focus on North Carolina geography, history, and state symbols as well as state government.
