Week of 8/14
We will finish forming the possessive of singular and plural nouns and begin reviewing prepositions and prepositional phrases. Wordly Wise 1 Lessons A-E are due Thursday. Spelling and vocabulary tests will be Friday.
Reading and AR
We use Accelerated Reading at Sacred Heart to help improve reading skills. AR goals are set in my classroom based on individual reading levels. I allow students to read any book they choose, as long as it is within their ZPD range. Reading of any kind continues to develop fluency and comprehension. Students are allowed to use apps like "Audible" in order to listen to a book as they are reading. Please note, students MUST have the book in front of them to follow along, whether it is a paperback or e-reader. The whole goal is to increase READING skills. Following along with audible narration models fluency and intonation. However, just listening to a book on "tape" is NOT reading, therefore, not improving reading skills. Students are allowed to bring e-readers to school for reading purposes (Kindles, tablets, etc. - not phones) as long as they have headphones.
