Reader's Workshop

Students are working on questioning, inferring and synthesizing while reading.

Finding Non-Fiction Text Features

Word Work

I'm sure you have seen your child's word work come home (at least, I hope you have). At the beginning of each week, your child will bring a copy of their word sort home. The activity sheet was also sent home, so you can help them practice. At the end of each week, your child will bring home the sort they have at school along with any activities they completed. After a few weeks, they will be taking an assessment over similar words having to do with the patterns they have been working on.
