3-5 RLA Newsletter
December 4, 2015
Hi 3-5 RLA Team,
We hope each of you enjoyed your Thanksgiving Break and that it didn't go by too quickly for you. Can you believe we have already completed one of the three weeks before Winter Break? This time of year can feel so very hectic for teachers. There is MAP testing, ANet testing, evaluations, holiday events, travel, and so many other things happening in your daily lives. Let us know if there are supports we can provide to you as you make your way to Winter Break with your students. We've started planning January CPD and can't wait to work alongside all of you on January 4th.
As always, reach out if you need us!

Guided Reading Tip of the Week
Informational Articles Resource
Students who are excellent readers often have a great depth of knowledge about the world around them. They are able to read at higher levels because they have the vocabulary needed to read more difficult texts. Using informational articles with your students is one way to help develop background knowledge and vocabulary for all students. ReadWorks.org has recently released informational articles with accompanying text-based questions. Use these resources to supplement your current work, as a workstation, or as a guided reading text where appropriate. Enjoy!
