For the week of November 16

Learning this Week


This week we are continuing to add to our non-fiction comprehension skills by working on the following skills:

- Determine the most important details in a section or entire text (new)

- Identify and use text features effectively

- Preview a text by reading the headings

- Determine the meaning of an unknown word by trying out a synonym

- Explain how ideas in a text are connected to each other


We've been working on our nonfiction books and have been learning lots including:

- Independently plan and write nonfiction books

- Write an introduction that captures the reader’s attention

- Write a conclusion that emphasizes why the topic is important (this week)

- Organize nonfiction writing with a table of contents, headings, and page numbers

- Use transition words throughout a nonfiction text

- Use pictures, labels, and captions to teach the reader

- Provide definitions within the text and/or a glossary (this week)


This week we continue to dive into multiple digit addition with and without regrouping- formerly known as carrying. :)
