Salmon Week 18 Update

January 18th - 22nd

Overview

First, I'm sorry about my neglecting to send out the flyer last week.


Reading: We are focusing on fact/opinion while reading, but also questioning as we read. What do "good readers" do to make sure they are understanding as they read.


Skill:

Questioning at the end of the paragraph, page, and/or passage.

Does this sound right or make sense to my understanding?

Rereading for clarification.


All students were given the the mid-year Dibels assessment. We will be adjusting Walk to Read groups to accommodate the needs of the students.


Science: We are focusing on the Three States of Matter (Solids, Liquid and Gas) as well as buoyancy of matter.


Writing: Students have finished up their Christmas Break Personal Narrative. This will be a writing sample that will be placed in their cumulative folders for the middle school to reference. Our next focus will be persuasive essays.
