Week 2 Down!

In Language Arts, we have been busy working on main idea and details. Students have been reading a few short texts as well as the book Horrible Harry at Sea. We are officially in our groups for rotations and students have been working on skills independently as well as with collaborative groups. Coming up, we’ll be working on characters, setting, and plot.

A letter was sent home with information about our spelling program. We will be doing bi-weekly spelling tests. Every other Monday, students will be introduced to their new sorts and we will work with the sorts during the week. The following week, students will take those those words home to sort and practice spelling. I sent home pages with instructions on different sorts. These are sorts the students are currently learning and practicing in school. Please let me know if there are any questions regarding our spelling program!

Starting in October, our class will take part in the Book-It program! Please be on the lookout for information regarding this coming home in the next few weeks. Reading towards their goal in the program each night will count for the students’ nightly reading assignment.
