Essential Standards

I will take the STAR test to show progress in my reading.

Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape.
 Today you will use 2D shapes to create new composite 2D shapes.

Write informative/explanatory texts in which they name a topic, supply some facts about the topic, and provide some sense of closure.
Today you will continue to research facts about your chosen animal for your Habitat project. You will write sentences about this information in your habitat report.
