Word Study
Due Date: 9/22/2017
Subject: Writing

Students will continue to use the Words Their Way spelling program this year. 

In order to generalize the spelling patterns and not just learn the spelling words,  students should sort and copy their spelling words each night.  The students will  also be given a menu of sorts and spelling activities from which to choose.

One activity is a word hunt in which students are asked to find words in their reading that follow the same pattern they are studying, not necessarily  the same words.

Students keep their word sorts in school and bring a second list home.The spelling journal should travel between home and school each day.


Building A Reading Life
Due Date: 9/1/2017
Subject: Reading

I hope  you have been  busy reading this summer and are   anxious to create a "book buzz" with your classmates. Together we will continue to  build a reading life by increasing stamina, fluency, and engagement. I am looking forward to sharing  my reading life with you.

You will be expected to  actively participate  in mini lessons , reading conferences, sharing with a reading partner, and   reading independently each day. You are also required  to read  for at least 30 minutes  each nightand write post-it notes to make your thinking visible. You will be asked to complete a daily reading log to keep track of your progress. This reading log will travel between home and school each night.    Each time you complete a book, add it to the Books Completed Sheet in your reading folder.
