New homework assignment
The format of the DORF is often the most difficult part. Students often get overwhelmed by the amount of words on one page and are unable to read the text. Therefore, I want to get them used to this format now so that they are prepared when the assessment window opens. We will be practicing in class, but I also want them to begin practicing at home.
Another area that is always difficult for this age group is responding to comprehension questions through writing. We will begin some written comprehension work to compliment our reading homework. This will begin next week.
We are in need!!!
