Spelling: We reviewed the Unit 5 spelling worksheet activities today.
Cursive: Cursive worksheet pp. 54-56 are available and due on Friday.
Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles. Some students worked on “chunking” unfamiliar words into pieces and looking for words within words.
Writing: We talked about using parentheses (sparingly!) in order to add information to help the reader to understand the story.
Students also continued to prewrite. The next piece of writing will be a fiction piece, due Friday, January 22. Students should be prewriting by now and ready to start their draft tonight or tomorrow.
