Language Arts— In April students will be learning about the differences between biography and autobiography. Additionally, students will be learned about different poetry structures – including free prose and haiku. Some of the strategies that students will continue to work on are summarizing texts, drawing conclusions, making inferences and developing more reading comprehension strategies for test taking. We will work on creating poems in writing workshop.
