School starts every day at 8 AM and ends at 3 PM.
We will continue literacy station rotations. I will continue to pull guided reading groups and continue to focus on reading strategies and phonics. I may also do some progress monitoring to adjust the reading groups as time permits.
For our literacy unit, we will read the story Tops and Bottoms by Janet Stevens.
We will continue to practice using evidence from the text to answer questions.
