Please turn in Field Day AND/OR field trip money/permission slips if you have not done so already. Field Day is $10, the theater field trip is $13. Due date for the Field Day money/permission slips is this Friday, 4/28/17.
We will continue literacy stations. I will continue to pull guided reading groups and continue to focus on reading strategies and phonics in small groups.
For our literacy unit, we will read various fables, and talk about what a fable is and the moral/lesson of the fable. We will continue to practice using evidence from the text to answer questions, as well as retell the story including key details, and demonstrate understanding of its central message/lesson. We will also describe characters, settings, and major events in the story.
Please practice the spelling words all week at home. Spelling test will be on Friday.
Sight Words # 146-150
