Grade 5 – February 12 Update

This week in fifth and sixth grade language arts, we are learning about expository essays. We are specifically focusing on “how to” expository essays. In this type of essay, the students get to teach and explain some activity they know how to do such as dribble a basketball, bake a cake and etc. Some components of this type of essay are including detailed steps, transition words (then, next, finally) and explaining a process so that anyone would be able to do it.
