This week we are preparing for our Unit 3 Reading Assessment test. The test will be this Thursday, January 24. The concepts that will be on the test are summarizing a text, author's purpose, determining a text structure, context clues, word relationships, and parts of speech. We will be working very hard in the classroom, helping to reinforce these skills so that your child will be successful on their assessment. Next week we will begin Unit 4.
