For the week of

March 9, 2019


Unit 3: Fiction- theme and character

This week, students will conduct book club meetings for our new fiction unit. Students are reading one the following books: Tuck Everlasting, Flush, Hatchet, A Wrinkle in Time, or Where the Red Fern Grows. This week is week 3. Each student has an individualized book club calendar. This calendar has weekly assignment information for the six week unit. Students also have a book club packet which has all necessary information for assignment completion. We will also do SBAC practice items and character relationship analysis.


Unit 2: Research-based Information Writing

 This week, students will take the Post-Information On-Demand Assessment. Students worked hard to finish the process piece last week! We will also work in our narrative notebooks on poetry. Our grammar focus for the week is adverbs. 

Reminders:  All students are expected to read at home for a minimum of 2 hours per week.
