Social Studies (Bowers, O'Neal, Ziraldo) Next week we will take a look at food consumption around the world. Following the break, we will explore other consumption patterns.

Language Arts (Dennison, Hayes, and Magistrale) Students will begin the Narrative Writing Unit.  This unit will last for several weeks as we break down the piece into smaller manageable sections.  Students will also continue to read from their free choice books while focusing on the elements of literature with the tracker.  Happy reading!
