Reading, Writing and Social Studies
Week of January 16th - 19th
During reading this week, students will continue to learn about making inferences and using context clues. Students will continue to read independently as well as in a small reading group. We will begin reviewing all the elements of fiction that we have learned about.
Our writing focus will continue to be imaginative narratives. We will also continue to try adding dialogue in our writing, control time through use of details and use the rule of three. We will begin the publishing process for an imaginative narrative of student choice.
Our grammar skill will be to learn about understanding prefixes.
Our phonics skill focus will be about beginning and ending blends. Students have the rule and sample words in their agendas.
Our Social Studies focus will continue to be about the growth of the colonies in the New World. We will also begin to learn about the causes of the American Revoluton.
