This week we will explore the similarities and differences of Colorado's Mountain and Plains Tribes. We will also continue to learn about first and third person point of view. We will be really honing this skill this week so that we can identify the clues that tell us what point of view a story is narrated from, and be able to compare and contrast aspects of different points of view.
Additionally, we have begun sharpening our skills with multiplication facts. Last week we mastered our 9's, and this week we will work on 8's. Please quiz them in the evenings. Once they have proven they know all the facts for the week they will not "have to" study them further that week, but of course that is the classroom and your family is encouraged to review the facts as often as you deem helpful to your student.
This week's vocabulary:
first person point of view, third person point of view,
This week's learning targets:
- I can describe point of view as first or third person
- I can identify how a person's point of view influences how events are described
- I can identify details that give a clue to point of view
- I can distinguish between a character's dialouge and a narrator's point of view
- I can use transition words and phrases in my writing
- I can use terms, examples, names, numbers, dates and illustrations to support my writing
- I can describe similarities and differences of Colorado's Mountain and Plain Tribes
Math
