Curriculum Updates

We are working on context clues and continuing to read Escaping the Giant Wave. This semester, we are focusing on Reader's Workshop. Students will only be responsible for completing RTWC one night at home weekly. It is up to them what night they would like to complete it as long as it is done by Thursday morning each week. The second one will be done in class on Friday, and I will serve as the checker. This will give me an additional opportunity to conference with each child. Looking ahead...this semester we will work on figurative language, cause & effect and compare & contrast to name a few skills.
