Mrs. Wells' Reader
This Week's Focus
Reading-We are working on TRC question stems to respond to reading.
Writing-The students are finishing up their poem and characteristics.
Math-We will work with fractions on number lines and word problems.
Fundations-We are finishing up with Unit 9. We fell behind due to MAP testing this past week and the field trip. Unit 10 homework will go home on Thursday of this week.
- Students will learn how to read and spell r-controlled syllables in isolation and when combined with other syllable types. They will also learn there is an exception to the r-controlled rule: If the r is followed by another r, the preceding vowel is often short. In the second week, they will learn additional sounds for ar and or. They will later learn that the 1-1-1 spelling rule applies to r-controlled words.
