We will continue to work on fluency skills. We will focus on comprehending while reading.
We are starting our last week of non-fiction writing this week. The last two weeks our class made non-fiction books about our classroom and about a classmate. This week we will be exploring food with our senses and making a book about food. Students seem to have a pretty good understanding about the difference between writing fiction and non-fiction. This will be important when we start our writer's workshop time in a couple weeks.
We are finishing up chapter 9 and I will send the packet of extra practice home tomorrow. We will get through chapter 10 this week on ordinal numbers.
We are reading See How We Grow this week. It is a book about two twin girls from birth to five years old. We will be learning about timelines and discussing changes as we grow and connecting that to other animals/plants.
I will be sending home a document this week that will have a date in April or May on it. This will be your child's day to bring a book and read to the class. I will have more instructions on the document. We will start next week.
