This Week in ELAR
Our focus for the third nine weeks will be poetry and drama. We will be learning various skills and information through these reading genres. Next week we will focus on imagery and how an author uses sensory language to create imagery in their writing. The students will take what they learn to create their own poems. We will also focus on the different types of sentences: simple, compound and complex.
Our academic vocabulary for the week: sensory language, imagery, analyze, evaluate, entertain, word choice.
Please continue to make sure your kiddo is doing their daily reading log and logging at least 20 minutes of reading a day and completing iStation on Wednesdays! I have really enjoyed reading their logs each week and seeing their thought process!

I will demonstrate how the day and night cycle occurs every 24 hours due to the rotation of the Earth.
I will demonstrate that the rotation of the Earth causes the day and night cycle.
I will explain how the Sun appears to move across the sky each day due to the rotation of the Earth.
How often does the day and night cycle occur on the Earth?
Describe the positions of the Earth and Sun when it is daytime. How is this different at nighttime?
On the Earth it looks like the Sun is moving across the sky. Why is this not true?
