English Language Arts:

 

Make sure your name is on each paper to be turned in!

 

Monday 4/6:

 

Vocabulary work: Same procedure as the past two weeks.The sentence must be a complete sentence using the word correctly.  It cannot be just restating the definition: The word __________ means ________________.

 

Reading Log:   I am asking them to read the normal amount of pages for this week and next. They should know their individual page count. Make sure they complete the back of the log by Friday.  All questions and connections should be written with complete sentences-capitalization and proper punctuation. The vocabulary part may be difficult if you do not have access to a dictionary, just help them come up with a definition using context clues from the book. 


 

Target Reading: Today they just read the story and annotate it as they go.  Here is what is expected:   

Annotate: Label whether the story is fiction or non-fiction

                Make a title prediction

                Come up with one question that you have while reading

                 Come up with one connection-either from their life, another book, movie, etc.

                 Highlight/underline a vocabulary word they do not know and look it up, or use the                           

                  context clues to define it.

                  Draw a mental image that they get while reading the story

                  Write a 3-5 sentence summary of the story-Remind them Beginning, Middle, End

 

Tuesday 4/7 :

Reading: Review vocabulary before listening to the story, The Day the Rollets got their Moxie Back.  You may either login and listen to the story or have someone read it to you. As you listen to the story, answer the questions in the margins on pages 35-37.
