We are still working on theme in Reading Workshop, also. We will have a short quiz Thursday or Friday in which they identify the theme for 4 very short stories from a multiple choice list and then provide evidence for their choice from the text.
In Writing Workshop, we are finishing summaries of Capture the Flag. Then we are writing our informational text piece about the Native American tribe 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. As students finish those, they can research and create a presentation on a scientist mentioned in our read aloud book. They can then teach the class about that scientist using their presentation.
In Word Study, we will finish a two week unit on the suffixes -able, -ible, -ful, and -less. Click here for a copy of the list. The test will be this Friday with a practice test this Thursday.
