Mrs. G's Classroom News
March 13, 2015
We worked on spelling unit 18 this week. We focused on two language skills - irregular verbs and homophones. Please be sure to ask your child if he or she is up to date with their spellingcity.com activity work. If they are not, it would be very beneficial for them to do some practicing at home. They can log into the spellingcity.com website by using the username and password in their agenda. Last week's contraction assessment was very difficult for most, so you can expect more contraction practice coming up in next week's lessons.
We have been working on reading choice books we are in love with and creating an awesome book report using the program called Powtoon. Most kids are enjoying this exciting way to create a book report and I can't wait to see how they turn out. Mrs. Giannandrea has also been conducting group work conferences during reading workshop. I have formed different groups based on fluency, comprehension and decoding skills. I am hoping this will help students gain skills in specific areas that are needed on a more individual basis.
