We will continue literacy stations, and I will do some progress monitoring (testing) to see how students have progressed thus far in reading. We will read a few different articles about turkeys, and continue to annotate a text for close reading. We will discuss the main idea of the text using details.

There are no specific words to practice this week, however we will be practicing the phonics pattern of short /e/ and short /u/ (pet, let/hut, dug, etc.) Please practice words following these patterns (make-believe/nonsense words are fine as long as they follow the pattern). No spelling test this week.
