Feb 19 - Feb 22
Students have been given their first word-sort, and have written them in their planners. These words all have a spelling rule to help build new words. Student word sorts were assigned based on individual needs in spelling. Not all students have the same words.
We will be working with this list for the next week. No test over these words, but after a bit more exposure we will assess their knowledge and application of the spelling rule to build new words. I will let you know when we will assess.
Text features in sequential structure; making inferences, and recognize text can be organized by cause and effect text structure.
We will analyze the expository structure and draft an essay about our talents.
We are studying comparative words that have the suffix -er or more, -est or most: Examples: taller, more beautiful; biggest, most interesting
We will continue to study the annexation of Texas into the United States.
