This week in Literacy we had a lot of fun because it was a review week! On Monday we talked more about homographs followed by a game with riddles of homographs.We also did a homograph scoot with 24 questions to answer. Our last game was an Author's Purpose memory game. What you had to do is match up the passages with the author's purpose you picked. On Tuesday, we reviewed synonyms with a QR code activity. Another skill reviewed is Drawing Conclusions and we did this mystery called "Who has the Report Card"? What we had to do is walk to each table and read the passages about the different workers and discuss who is would be. On Wednesday we watched the 3 little pigs the true story and the cartoon version. We had to Compare and Contrast those two videos on a website called Venn Diagram. We also reviewed Adverbs with an activity sheet. On Thursday, we reviewed Prepositions with an activity sheet. Finally, Today we did a Zaption on Memorial Day and did our end of the year test with a Kahoot. That is what we did in Literacy this week.
