May showers bring June flowers?? Let us hope that Spring is coming soon.
Can you believe that it is already May? Where has the school year gone? You know what they say...time flies when you are having fun!
In Social Studies we are now traveling through Rome. So far, we have learned about the geography, water, and some of the crops that they grew. We are pushing through and will learn more about their government, arts (very much like Greece...or are they a copy?), and religion too.
In Reading we will be starting to read Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief! This has been a favorite of my students and it links up well with Rome too. We have learned that Rome has the same gods as Greece, just different names.
April is Poetry month and we are continuing that month into May! We are in the midst of our poetry unit and have read poems by Langston Hughes and Gary Soto so far. Up next, we have Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, and Ted Kooser.
