In Reading Workshop this week we will focus on cause and effect which many students confuse. We'll do many activities throughout the week and then take a small assessment on cause/effect on Friday.
Our new read aloud will be Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai. It's about a ten year old girl from Saigon whose family flees her home and country for safety towards the end of the Vietnam War and moves to Alabama. This girl struggles with the grief of leaving her old country and learning to understand and work through all of the changes in her life including life in Alabama. The story is based on the author's real life and written in poetry format.
In Writer's Workshop, we will do several quick writes. We will also write a book advertisement, sharing our favorite books with others.
In Word Study, we will begin another unit on Suffixes that are not plural. A word list will come home tomorrow, and the assessment will be Friday, December 13th.
