We will also have an inference quiz on Thursday after doing a few more activities with inferences.
In Writing Workshop, about half of the students are still writing their informational text pieces about the Native American tribes they chose in Social Studies class. They will work on this in class, and have been given a checklist to assist them as they work. The students that are done have a choice of activities. Some are researching and creating a presentation on a scientist mentioned in our read aloud book. They can then teach the class about that scientist using their presentation. Some are researching a topic of their choice and creating a keynote or google doc with partners or alone and presenting it to the class. They are really enjoying google docs, as many of you have probably noticed. I love seeing their creations in progress as they share them with me. Others who are finished are writing in our whole class journals or doing some choice writing in their notebooks. Weekly writing homework: Students are to write 10 minutes in their Writer's Notebooks on the topic of their choice. These are due each Wednesday.
In Word Study, we will begin prefixes sub-, col-/com-, inter-, under- and de-. Click here for a copy of the list. The test will be on Friday, November 21st.
