Week of 4/2/2018


We are working on finding the lesson or central message in a story. After reading a fictional story we ask: What did the characters learn? What did the author want us to learn? How can we apply this to our life? After looking for the lesson in books, we will be practicing finding the lesson in fables/folktales and in songs.


In writing, we are beginning our new unit on Non-fiction writing. Students have chosen an animal to research and write about. We will be using books and the resource,, to do research and collect facts about our animals. Then students will use their notes to write a book in their own words.


After break we started switching students between the 3 classrooms to target individual student needs. It will allow us to focus more on the skills and needs of each student. Students will all receive the same core instruction, but will then receive additional targeted instruction.
