Reading: This month we are going to read stories from our Journeys textbook including stories, "Stormalong" and "Invasion from Mars." We will use these stories to talk about Reading skills such as character traits and story structure. We will also begin our novel study on Shiloh. 

Language Arts: This month we are learning about common and proper nouns, concrete nouns, possessive nouns, verb tenses, helping and linking verbs. We will continue to use Simple Solutions to practice a variety of grammar and spelling topics. 

Spelling: Students are required to do 20 points a week in their Spelling notebook every week. They will have a spelling test on Fridays.
