Mrs. Hawker's Newsletter

Language Arts

Each student is reading a fictional book at this time. After we read, we have been writing a response on Schoology. In doing this, the children begin examining how different characters and the reader can experience similar events in different ways. It ends with making connections between the novel and life.


We have been practicing writing and going back to edit our work for punctuation and grammar. We have also discussed the term revising and what that means. We will continue to work on these skills in the next week!
