In Writing Workshop, we will do some research on a topic of our choice and prepare for a 45 minute writing time in which they write about that topic using their research. I am planning to have that writing time on Friday. We'll talk about organization and writing a good lead in preparation for this. 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 are working on the prefixes sub-, col-/com-, inter-, under- and de-. Click here for a copy of the list. The test will be on Friday, November 21st.
