ELA-Reading   

Reading

 

During Interactive Read-Alouds, students will read a chapter book together as a whole class.  We will have discussions on the book, and students will answer questions in their response notebooks.  

For Independent Reading, students must bring in a chapter book to read.  During this time, students will focus on comprehension as well as fluency.  Each time they read, they will fill out a reading log about their book.  


ELA- Vocabulary   

Vocabulary and Spelling

 

Each lesson includes 20 words and will be covered over the course of two weeks.  Words will typically be introduced on a Wednesday with a spelling test the following Wednesday and a vocabulary test two weeks from the date the words are introduced.

Each student has access to the lists online where there are a number of helpful resources to help the students learn the words.  There is a sticker, which has the address for the website and login information, on the inside cover of each student’s vocabulary book.

Scholastic Book Clubs   

Scholastic Book Clubs

Every month I will be sending home flyers for Scholastic Book Clubs to my ELA class.  It is optional to purchase books through these clubs.  Each book purchased earns points to be used towards purchasing books for our own classroom library.

If you choose to place an order, please fill out the order form and make checks payable to Scholastic Book Clubs.  Be sure to send back the order form along with your check.  Please do not send in cash.

Book orders will not be sent home on months that the Scholastic Book Fair takes place at our school (November and March).

If you decide to purchase books, I hope you and your child enjoy them!
