We have been practicing reading comprehension strategies (reading questions before the text, highlighting key events and important words, going back into the text to find answers and clues, predicting what might happen next and looking up unfamiliar words).
Students should be reading a minumum of 10 minutes per night. This will help them become fluent readers, and it's a great way to start our class by sharing what we read the night before:)
Soon we will be starting business letters and the students will be tested on following the correct format.
We are currently working on Portrait Poems. Please send a photo to school with your child so it can accompany the poem. We are also discussing Figurative Language and will be starting a mini-unit shortly.
Students should be reading for at least 10 minutes each night. We will be discussing their books as well as completing written responses.
