Reading Strategy and Skill

Character, Setting, and Plot

Monitor Comprehension/ Reread


We like to remind the students that reading is not about memorizing every detail in the story, because you can always reread if you forget or realize that you have lost focus. We also encourage students to read dramatically whether they are reading aloud or in their own heads. Reading with intonation and emotion will help you stay focused on what you read!

High-frequency words

island

though

special

Math

Measurement

This week we are talking about the metric system. We are measuring using centimeters. We will talk about estimating measurements and rounding a measurement up or down.
