News From the Nest
October 13-16, 2015
We practiced meeting in small groups to discuss connections we have to common text this week and will continue to practice next week as well. We will also review elements of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. I will be meeting with each student next week to review their reader's notebooks to look for evidence of good note-taking and elaborate responses to text. This will help guide the end of unit evaluation that will be coming home at the end of the quarter.
We have three more weeks to this quarter for students to make their AR goal. Several students have already made their goal and are on their way to additional goals as well!
Fluency practice will come home on Tuesday next week and will be due on Friday. Please listen to your child read this short passage aloud at least 3 times during the week. They should also be answering the 5 questions on the back to practice finding key ideas and supporting details in the text.
A Few Reminders...
- NO SCHOOL on Monday! Enjoy the long weekend
- Signed Friday Folders due Tuesday
- Reading Log due Tuesday
