A Peek at Our Week

Reading: This week we are wrapping up fables and folktales. We will work to define fablesĀ and folktales and find their central message.

Writing: We will continue to work on our opinion writing pieces. We will incorporate letter writing into an opinion writing piece this week as well. Students will need to know the parts of a letter and where to place commas within a letter.

Spelling: This week’s spelling pattern focus is on silent consonants. This is a tricky pattern and will need additional practice throughout the week both at home and at school. As with any spelling pattern, have students work to generalize that pattern by forming additional words that follow the same pattern. Our spelling test will be Friday.
