Good afternoon. We are nearly done with MSTEP so I will be going back to my normal routine with homework. Your child brought home a book today. The genre of the book is a Folk Tale. In folktales their is a message the author is sending.
Reading Homework: Your child is to read chapter 1 ONLY. There is a graphic organizer your child will be using during Reading. They must read like a DETECTIVE to figure out clues so they can DETERMINE the author’s purpose for writing the text. Your child is very familiar with using the graphic organizer and taking notes during reading.
** We continued the week with homophones. Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meaning and usage. I added a few more words to the list on the bottom.
Homophones: (words that sound alike but have different spelling, meaning and usage)
There is no homework tonight. I went light on the students because of M-STEP testing. However sleeping on time and eating a healthy breakfast will help prepare your child for testing. Thank you for your support. There are spelling words this week. So please look on the next post.
Reading: Read the passage “What’s this? Frozen Frog and answer the comprehension questions using complete sentences.
Spelling: Study your words test tomorrow
