Weekly Core Update for the week of September 16, 2019

Dear Students and Parents,

I will be out of the classroom on Monday and Wednesday for professional meetings. I know I can count on the students to treat our guest teachers with kindness and respect.

Here's what's up in Core next week:

Writing Workshop: Students will practice strategies for generating ideas for writing personal narratives.

Reading Workshop: Continue reading fiction for independent reading. We'll continue to review and practice essential reading strategies this week, especially focusing on characters.

Vocabulary/Conventions: Train 3x/week on Membean, our online vocabulary program, and take a quiz Friday. Continue learning to edit using proofreading symbols.

History: Early Humans (Lesson 2 in our history textbook, The Ancient World).

We're off to a great start!

Ms. Waterman :-)
