We will also read some non-fiction and discuss it.
Reading Homework: Reading logs are due each Monday
Writing Workshop: Students are preparing a ten minute lesson as part of our EdCamp. The first Ed Camp was last week, and it was a huge success! We will have two more Ed Camps this week - Wednesday after the fieldtrip and Friday during our breaks on Multicultural Day. This is a chance for students to choose and prepare something they are interested in and something that they think others might be interested in, as well. This is totally a choice topic project, although I have said no Minecraft. :) They will have 10 minutes to teach, and they will teach the same lesson two times in a row for two different small groups of students. Students not teaching that day will choose 4 sessions to attend and participate in. Everyone will get a turn to teach. If your child is teaching this Tuesday, they should practice at home.
Writing homework: Students are to write 10 minutes in their Writer's Notebooks on the topic of their choice. These are due each Wednesday.
Word Study: Prepositional Phrases - We'll start to memorize a list of prepositions, understand their purpose and then write sentences using prepositional phrases.
