Language Arts

SOL #3.5, 3.6
TSW continue to read and comprehend on-grade level passages using the UNRAVEL strategy.  They will work in small groups on comprehension, fluency, and phonics on their reading level.  There will be some assessments on that level at the end of the week.

There is a writing assignment this week – Week #2.  The prompt is in the green booklet titled, “Weekly Writing Assignments”.  This is a homework assignment they can work on all week, and it is due on Friday.  We expect to see a rough draft (sloppy copy) and a neat final copy.  We will start the prompt in class on Monday, but the rest needs to be completed at home.  The rubric we use to grade these is found in the beginning of the booklet.  Please make sure students work on this a little every night so they do not wait until the last minute to finish it.  We look forward to reading their writing!
