This week students are completing a “Book” report. They have made a book about their book. We have some very creative students! Almost everyone has completed the RI test. 6th grade will complete their test tomorrow. I will send home the results when everyone has completed testing.
Students have completed the GA Milestone. They are now preparing to complete their final Reading Inventory. This will assess their total reading growth for the entire year. I will send home the results when everyone has completed their test.
Students completed a mid-workshop skills check. We are beginning the second half of our workshop. Students are reviewing reading skills and test strategies preparing for the GA Milestone.
We are completing the text I am Malala this week. Students are locating the main idea and supporting details. They are also determining meaning of unfamiliar words.
We are in the home stretch for this school year. Students are working hard to improve the reading Lexile before the end of the year. We are reading a new text “I am Malala.” Remember the software can be accessed at home using the Lovinggood home page. It can be found on the left hand side of the page “Read 180 students.” It is “on” from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM. However, they can use it anytime to read books or eReads.
This week students will be taking the RI test. Students are excited to see their Lexile growth. We will begin testing on Tuesday.
This week we will be spending much time on the software in preparation for the RI test. Students are anxious to see their improvement. We will begin testing next week. Our focus this week is to review important details, inferences, and context clues.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
This week we have focused on main idea and supporting details. Students have also reviewed prefix and root word meanings to determine vocabulary. We have also discussed the use of context clues to help determine the meaning of unfamiliar words.
Their second Quick Write is due Friday.
Students completed there first Quick Write for this nine weeks. Grades are being posted. Students also completed a main idea activity. I should have them graded by the end of the week.
This week we will continue in our workshop. Students are identifying the key idea in an informational text and making connections to details to help them better understand what they are reading.
Please remember to use the software at home. It really makes a difference in the progress being made.
