Salmon Week 18 Update

January 18th - 22nd


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.


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.
