2/6-2/10

Our next Snapshot (quiz) will be February 24 (Friday).
Parent Teacher Conference Day is Feb 20.
In case of a snow day, a document (text structures) has been uploaded under Useful Links for practice.

Homework
Homework will be sent home on an as needed basis this week.


Reading Skills
We are reading picture books this week to work on organizational patterns/text structures as well as main idea and the plot diagram.
We'll also be starting the nonfiction novel I am Malala and Al Capone Does My Shirts in our reading groups.

Writing
Our goal is to finish Fundamentals of Sentence Writing as soon as possible. Students will be writing sentences using the four formulas, SV, SSV, SVV, and SSVV.

Tutoring
I will be pulling students for tutoring on Tuesday and Thursday to work on fiction and nonfiction skills to retest Snapshots so that students achieve mastery.
