I will continue end of year reading testing. Between now and June I will be testing students on reading level for the end of the year. I will send home a half sheet of paper with reading level information, as well as an attachment that explains strategies you can use at home to help your child continue to improve in reading.
In literacy this week, we will read a series of articles about different weather phenomena. We will ask and answer questions about the text, talk about the main idea of the text, and compare and contrast different types of weather events.
If your child is absent any days this week, here is a link to the articles we will be reading.
