Writing Skills: The students will have their spelling mastery quizzes this week and will apply learned spelling rules to complete charts in their English notebooks.
Reading Skills and Literature: We will be continuing our unit on The Little House in the Big Woods. We will do most of our reading in class. The book is divided into three parts and there is a packet to correspond to each of the three parts. Students will complete these packets in class and it will assess comprehension of the text as well as give them a chance to look deeper into the vocabulary used. This week we are focusing on chapters 7-10 and will complete pages in our packet relating to homonyms, paragraph formation and dictionary usage.
Homework: Read at least 30 minutes per night of the book of the students choice. Spelling sentences assigned Monday and due on Wednesday, 4/17.
Have a great week,
