Small Group Reading
Now that our whole class expository essays are complete and we have gone through the process of writing an expository piece from beginning to end, students will begin to work through writing their own piece independently. This week we will take a part of the pillar per day for the students to draft out. Our topic or prompt will be a spin-off of our whole class piece which was to write about your favorite season. As a class, we wrote about the season of fall. Students will choose from summer, spring and winter as they draft their piece this week.

We have covered the doubling rule, doubling and e-drop before adding suffix -ing, and irregular plurals. This week students will receive a new list to work with in class. We are also looking at specific grammar rules during our bell work time, when we revise and edit a short writing passage. During this bell work students must not only justify which answer is correct but also why each incorrect answer should not be chosen. We are really doing some deep thinking and sharing great thoughts.
