Reading/Writing

We read The Nice Mitten and The Gingerbread Man this week. We also read other stories where we practiced the skills of g, dge. Our grammar skill was commas.


We have been working on the trait of word choice in writing. We have also been working on opinion and persuasive writing pieces.


Your child can work on the Raz-Kids website at anytime for more practice on reading comprehension. If you think your child's level is too easy let me know and I can increase the difficulty. The teacher username is: smitchellav
