Reading and Writing
Our skill in the story will be compare and contrast in a Venn diagram, along with idioms, and generating questions as they read a story. Cook- A- Doodle -Do! is similar to the story Little Red Hen, but in this version, the story has a more specific recipe which goes along with our unit on procedures. This week, students will also read about the history of snowmen and then follow directions for making their own snowman. Our unit 4 A test will be next week, so please look over the unit 4 A vocabulary in your child's yellow folder. The terms will help them with understanding questions on the test.
In writing, students will write a letter to their parents or Santa telling them what they want for the holiday or just in general. They will support it with reasons why they deserve what they are asking for.
