Essential Question: What does it mean for someplace, something, or someone to be unique?
We will be finishing up Unit 4 this week. We will begin by comparing the setting and events in folktales and/or fables. We will then end the week by writing our own Cinderella story.
Students should be reading a least 20 minutes a night. They should log the book/pages and minutes read. They should also complete an appetizer, entre and dessert activity from the menu provided. menu of activities to choose from and complete.
R-controlled /ir/ spelled eer (steer), ear (hear), and ere (here). We will use this sound and spellings in order to read, write, and spell words.
Each night have your child choose one of the activities from the spelling menu. Your child/children may create a different activity to practice their words. Please remember to sign their spelling homework each night.
The spelling test will consist of 5 words and 3 high frequency words from this week's list. It will also include 2 words from previous skills. The students will then choose one word and use it in a meaningful sentence. This sentence will be graded for CAPSS.
