Welcome Back!! I hope everyone had an amazing holiday and a relaxing Winter Break!!! Thank you so much for all of the beautiful cards and gifts! I am greatly appreciative! Happy New Year to everyone!
I will be collecting and checking your child’s Winter Break work. Students will receive a grade for completed work in the Winter Break folder.
This is your child’s yellow homework assignment sheet for Rdg./Lang. Arts/Writing- Lesson 14. Be sure your child has this sheet in his/her Rdg. folder every day. Ea. Mon., students will receive this yellow assignment sheet outlining all of the hw assignments for the week as well as important notes for parents. Please be sure your child completes the correct hw ea. day, that you check all papers, & sign ea. assignment so that I will know that you have checked your child’s work.
Also, try to listen to your child read ea. night, for at least 20 min. Ask questions about what was read to reinforce comprehension skills.
The Home Letter is also sent home ea. Mon. to keep you abreast of what skills are being covered in Rdg. & what you should be working on at home as well as suggestions for books to pick up at the library for that week.
This week we will be studying Spelling words that have the –ar, -or, & -ore sound
Our Comprehension skill this week is author’s purpose; we will be using text details to tell why an author writes. An author writes to inform or describe, to persuade, or to entertain.
Our Comprehension strategy this week is summarize; we will tell the important parts of the text in our own words.
In Grammar, we will be working on subject/verb agreement. The subject of a sentence and the verb (predicate) must agree in number, tense, & gender. Most verbs in the present tense end with –s when the subject is singular; some verbs, though, end with –es such as those that verbs that end with s, sh, ch, x, or z when they are used with a singular noun. If the subject is plural, we do not add –s or –es to the verb.
Vocabulary Strategy: in-, im- (meaning “not”) incorrect, improper
LATE assignments are lowered 1 letter grade. Words that are capitalized on Spelling tests & Spelling assignments that are NOT proper nouns are marked incorrect.
