Will use all stages of the writing process- prewriting, drafting, revising, and editing- to produce clear and coherent writing. Make narrative and expository presentations. Explore character’s thoughts and motivations to determine the reasons for that character’s actions.
In Math Students should be able to: Interpret multiplication equations. Multiply or divide to solve problems by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem. To solve multistep problems posed with whole numbers and having whole number answers using the four operations. Find all factors pairs for a whole number in the range of 1-100
