In grammar, we have covered abbreviations and titles. As the year continues, these grammar lessons are included in the requirements of good writing. Our next two weeks will include a study of commas.
This week will be the first review vocabulary lesson. This test covers the first four lessons of vocabulary. I urge the students to visit my Mrs. Lynch 103 Quizlet page to study the vocabulary to be prepared for the review test.
The children read their independent books in class daily and keep track of their progress in a reading log and a graphic organizer. We also read short stories on a regular basis to discuss topics such as main idea, author's craft or reading strategies like prediction or picturing. We will be starting a read aloud this week called The Unwanteds and a core book to be read by the class as a whole prior to the end of the month.
