Students are continuing to review their reading comprehension skills as we move throughout the year. This week we'll specifically be focusing on drawing conclusions and finding the main idea. We'll continue to show students what inferring is and how we do it using our schema and text clues.
In Writing, students will focus on stretching their sentences by adding more details. We will also keep focusing on sentence structure in grammar with review of compound sentences and writing complete sentences.
Students will be focusing on state and national heroes. They will research important facts and compare and contrast the different impacts they have had on our local and national culture. This week, we will focus on Hector P. Garcia, James A. Lovell, John "Danny" Olivas, and Todd Beamer.
