First Grade News - Ms. Costello
October 30th - November 3rd, 2017
We will continue literacy stations, and I will continue to pull guided reading groups this week. We are working on reading strategies (using picture clues to figure out tricky words, making a guess that makes sense when coming across tricky words). We will read the book Little Red Riding Hood, and discuss character traits, setting, and major events in the story using details from the text.
