Topics of Study
WritingIn our writing workshop, we will be focusing on narratives, persuasive, and research reports through out the year. The children will be revising and editing written material to publish a wonderful final piece.ReadingEach day students read independently in class, as well as at home for homework. This will help strengthen their fluency (making our reading sound like talking) and expose students to new vocabulary. At home ask students questions about what they are reading to get them used to talking about their books. In reading instruction we will focus on various reading comprehension skills and students will strive to understand what they are reading. Skills include sequencing, comparing and contrasting, and picking out important details in connection to the main idea of the story.Focus Comprehension Skill- Character and SettingFocus Comprehension Strategy- Use Graphic OrganizerTheme three and four- Expository NonfictionFocus Comprehension Skill- Locate InformationFocus Comprehension Strategy- Use Prior KnowledgeMathOur class will be using the math program, Go Math!
