Steppin' into Heisdorf's Room
News and Notes
This week we started looking at features of non-fiction books. We have been reading about insects as well.
Over the next few weeks we will be reading some non-fiction books in our reading groups. We will be looking at how non-fiction text is organized, main idea and supporting details.
Along with that, we will be starting to work answering comprehension questions as well.
With this program we spend a lot of time looking at the spelling patterns and sort words. We do not have a lot of time built in for studying. Students will need to do that at home.
Today students brought home a practice sheet. Please find the time to quiz your child nightly on the words. They should check over their work and correct any mistakes. Then each night they should do the same. On Tuesday and Thursday they should fold the paper in half so they can't see the work from the night before.
Students will be turning in their practice sheets every Friday.
If you have any questions please call me.
Next week we will be moving into subtraction strategies.
