In reading we will be working on strategies to use when we come to unknown words such as looking at the pictures for clues, looking at the first letter, sounding out the word, looking for parts of the word that you already know, and trying a word to see if it makes sense.
In writing we are finishing up our unit on "Writing for Readers" by working with a partner to strengthen the stories we write. The students will write for a period of time by themselves then read their story to their partner. Their partner can then help them with spelling, give ideas, ask questions (to get them to write more), and give COMPLIMENTS.
The next writing Unit will begin soon. In this next unit the children will learn how to write a "How To" book. We will read a lot of great mentor texts that show the children what a How To book is.
