LANGUAGE FOR THE WEEK OF
While we continue to classify sentences in our Shurley curriculum, in Daily Language we are beginning a two-week unit of learning the proper way to write addresses and friendly letters.
READIN FOR THE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 11TH:
Monday: "The Long Way to a New Land"
The children and I will read Chapter 4, "Storm and Fever". Then they'll write in their Yesterday journals as if they are Carl Eric making the trip to America.
Tuesday: "The Long Way to a New Land"
After a review of Chapter 4 the students will make a up their own title for the chapter. They'll also draw pictures of the beginning, middle, and end of the chapter to add to their growing time line.
Wednesday: "A Home on the Prairie"
The students will learn about informational text, practice the vocabulary for the informational story, and then read it. Students will reread in Reading Circles. They'll develop the vocabulary they studied before reading the story.
Thursday: "A Home on the Prairie"
Based on the book the kids read on Wednesday we'll:
1. Check for Understanding
2. Use Text Features and Graphics
3. Make and Confirm Predictions
4. Academic Vocabulary
5. Spell Words with long /a/: /ai/, /ay/, /ae/
Friday: "The Long Way to a New Land"
We're going to work on poetry and a "Giving Thanks" book. We'll also read in Reading Circles which we're really enjoying and excited about.
Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.
