It's another busy week in Language Arts class!
On Monday, students will take the SRI (Scholastic Reading Inventory) test. Students enrolled in Read 180 took this assessment earlier in the month.
We are continuing to read the Lightning Thief in class. There will be at least 1 chapter assigned for homework on Tuesday. I will be emailing students an e-text, although students can check out a hard copy from the library, if they prefer.
We will also continue working on our personal narratives. Students have selected their challenging moment and have started using different elaboration techniques to draft the narrative. This week we will begin incorporating dialogue and work hooks for interesting beginnings.
Readers' Workshop will also begin this week. Students who already have a book they are reading at home must bring the book in on Wednesday.
I look forwarding to meeting families at Open House on Tuesday!
