Writing: We are beginning a new unit of study of Nonfiction Writing.  Understanding the purposes and possibilities of nonfiction writing will motivate students to read and write informational texts. Through reading and writing nonfiction, your child will come to understand the kinds of texts nonfiction writers create and decisions nonfiction writers make about content, structure, language, and visuals.  They will learn how nonfiction writers think, how they research topics, and how they convey ideas and information clearly. By the end of this unit, students will choose one topic to publish for their final writing piece.

Reading: Nonfiction is a rich, engaging genre offering a variety of topics that will entice any reader! Students have a natural curiosity and wonder about many things. Nonfiction encourages them to closely observe and learn about all that is around them. We will learn how to apply specific reading skills and strategies that will enable them to discover facts, identify the big ideas, and learn new information about the topics they are reading about.

Topics: Different types of ecosystems and How do plants and animals interact.  Please review any worksheets and/ or vocabulary sheets that come home in their take home folder.
