Reading-This week we have focused on two Comprehension skills to help us understand what we read. One of the skills was to use prior knowledge to help us make connections to the text and the other one in monitor and fix-up. In monitor and fix up they are asking questions as they read like, Who is the book about? What's happening in the story? Does the story make sense? What is the author trying to tell me? If they cannot answer these questions, they need to go back and reread.
Writing- Narrative writing is the focus in writing again next week. They will be focusing on making writing goals for themselves with my help at first and eventually the goal is for them to be able to make their own writing goals independently.
Science- We are continuing our scientific inquiry unit next week. We will be writing our Problem or Question, Hypothesis along with the materials we will need, Results to our experiment and Conclusion to our experiment. The following week we will be starting our actual experiment.
