I hope you were all able to enjoy the beautiful weather that we experienced this past Saturday. Here’s what is coming down the pike, this week, that will give our brains a workout and make them stronger.
Reading: The practicing and performing of our idiomatic readers’ theaters took more time than what I had anticipated last week. The children did a fabulous job of reading at a fluent rate with wonderful expression! Hopefully, your child has shared with you some of the idioms that we worked with. If not, encourage them to. Since the readers’ theaters took longer than expected we began lesson twenty one today. The passage is expository nonfiction, and the focus skill is author’s viewpoint/perspective.
Spelling: Since the children are completing two Math PSSA tests today and Wednesday, the 5th grade isn’t doing a spelling unit this week.
