This week in Reading class, we are learning about theme, point of view, and summaries. In Math class this week, we are learning about prime and composite numbers. In Writing class, we learned about the writing process. Also, in Science, we took a test and learned how to separate a mixture of objects. Band practice also started this week! 5th grade is fun!
Welcome back 5th graders! We are off are to a great start in Reading class. We started the week by talking about theme. Theme is the message or lesson that the author wants you to learn from a story. The theme is not stated outright in a story, but you must read between the lines to figure it out! Next, we moved on to point of view and perspective. We learned about how point of view and perspective can influence, or change, a story. We can now identify the difference between 1st person, 2nd person, 3rd person limited, and 3rd person omniscient. We started working on a graded point of view assignment called POV and Pictures. I can't wait to see the final products!
