A Glimpse into Merriman's Menagerie
Besides adjectives, we really focused on reading and understanding nonfiction. We focused on Europe this week. We read short nonfiction articles about Europe's culture, its connection to the world, and its plants and animals. We continue to struggle to go back into the text to find proof of answers. Our skills of study this week were cause and effect, sequential order, context clues, and inferencing based on context. We read each article as class and identified the main idea of each paragraph by summarizing it in 1-3 words. This was designed to help students be able to go back into the text to find answers. We will continue through nonfiction as we read and learn about Africa next week. We will have a CFA over nonfiction on Friday.
We will have the last Northeast regions landforms quiz on Wednesday. For those who have not passed this yet after having at least 3 tries, this will be the last time to take it. We will be moving on to the Southeast region states. For those who are ahead, that quiz will be Wednesday as well.
