Language Arts

In Reading, we will continue to discuss fix-up strategies to use when students come to an unknown word. Students will practice retelling using the Five W's. (Who, What, When Where and Why) In Readers Theater, students will practice in reading fluently with expression in groups.


In Word Study, we will study high frequency words and spelling patterns. Each Monday a list will come home. Students will select from the Homework Menu a way to practice of their choice each night. Spelling tests will be on Fridays. This week we will study vowel digraph -oa as in boat and -ea as in leaf.
