We are studying theme right now in reading. We have reviewed 15 common themes in literature and talked about books, movies, etc. that have these themes. We will read picture books and poetry this week to continue to find themes. We will also provide evidence from the stories to support the themes.
In Writing Workshop, we are beginning our research /informational writing project. We are choosing our own topics and brainstorming a list of question to research. We will use at least three resources, and this work will all be done in school.
In Word Study, we are learning about prefixes, their meanings, and the way they change the meaning of base words. Our assessment will be on January 22nd. Lists were sent home last week.
