Fourth Grade Parkside Elementary
November 16th - November 20th
English Language Arts (Literacy/ Reading)
Informational Text/ nonfiction is our focus for the remainder of second quarter. The past two weeks we worked on introductions to informational text- articles, advertisements (anyone get pressured into buying Dannon yogurt lately?), biographies and speeches. When viewing and reading informational texts be sure to make assumptions about the author, think about the targeted audience, look for text features to help understand the text, and decide the purpose. We are moving into context clues- determining an unknown word’s meaning.
Students should be reading nightly and completing assigned reading logs. Fiction and Nonfiction books should be brought home to school daily.
