The Stegemoller Scoop

February 15-19

Book Wars!

You should have received an email from Mrs. Noe about our Book War this week. We have been teamed up with a fourth grade classroom (Mrs. Wilson) to compete. Please make sure that your child's red recording sheet stays in their Take Home Folder so it can come back and forth to school every day. I will need to record the page count they read at home every day. Homework will be on the back of the recording sheet. I hope your child participates at home to help our team! : )

ISTEP

READING


Unit 4 Week 6


It is a 4 day week, so we decided to use this time to incorporate our Week 6 activities. We will be performing Reader's Theater and researching a famous African American in honor of Black History Month!


WRITING


We are working on test writing and they are doing a great job citing evidence from the story and incorporating his or her own opinions in their writing. We are working on opinion, informational, and narrative responses. I will be taking a grade on each type of writing genre once our mini-lessons are completed. This should only help their writing grade, not hurt it.
