We are reading The One and Only Ivan and enjoying this touching story that is based on the real life of Ivan, the gorilla. Ask your child about the video clip of the elephants being reunited we watched in class last week. The video has a lot of similarities to what is happening in our story.
In Writing Workshop, we are continuing to work on our informative writing (research reports). Most of us have our research done, and we will work on organizing our information and putting it all into paragraphs that flow together this week. This is all work that can be done at school.
In Word Study, we will have our assessment on Common Prefixes List 1 this Friday. Students can go to https://www.spellingcity.com/Hoover5fis/ to practice their words at home. All of our lists will now be on this site, to assist students in studying at home. They can play games, do a practice test, and much more.
