This week we will be studying Spelling words that have the .silent letter combinations: kn & wr.
Our Comprehension skill this week is drawing CONCLUSIONS. We will use details to figure out ideas that the author does not directly state. Practice this skill while reading at home.
Our Comprehension strategy that we will be using to develop the above skill is INFER/PREDICT. As we read, we will look for selection details & clues to help us figure out more about the selection. We will predict what the author wants to teach readers through the story.
In Grammar, we will be working on using commas correctly- in a series of nouns and/or verbs & in addresses.
In Writing, we will be practicing “opinion” writing or stating our opinion in a piece of writing.
Words that are capitalized on Spelling tests & Spelling assignments that are NOT proper nouns are marked incorrect. Late Work is lowered one letter grade.
