Week 9 Spelling Test
Reading: We completed reading "Wilson Sat Alone". The Essential Questions for this unit is "How and why do characters respond to change? How does questioning help me to understand text? We are concentrating on making predictions and determining cause and effect. We began reading Meow Means Mischief , which provides ample opportunities for making predictions as well as being another example of narrative writing.
The students worked in their reading centers, which included: read around the room, Top Ten List (this week's topic is Autumn), Word Work (words with "ed" endings), Listening Center, and Sequencing.
Students were sharing their memories of special people, before writing about the special people.
The students practiced reading fluency with Halloween poems (using interesting voices)!
Using a coordinate grid, the students practiced reading long "i" words.
