activity to do each day of the week. Having this extra practice each week will help them
with their sentence structure, grammar, spelling, and confidence in writing paragraphs.
We use the Step Up to Writing methods which the students have been using since first
grade and practicing in class. Please help your student by having them read their
paragraph to you each Thursday so they can start editing their own work.
Weekly Reading Comprehension Selection-We will also be continuing to practice
reading a short selection and answering questions related to the passage. This will help
the students be more successful on their Cold Read Assessments in class as well as
Terra Nova Testing in the Spring. Please encourage them to read it the first time for
meaning, the second time looking for main ideas and repeated words, and then answering
the questions by going back to the text to find evidence.
