This week...

September 16-20

In reading, we will continue reading the novel Because of Winn-Dixie. Students will learn more about the main character, Opal, and her adventures with the "grocery store" dog. We will discuss vocabulary, find text evidence, review quotations, and learn about the setting. In grammar, we will review the structure of a paragraph by discussing topic sentences, relevant details, transitions, and closing sentences. All pages will be completed in class this week; there will not be grammar homework. Our vocabulary test will be Thursday, September 19th.

In social studies, we will finish our discussion over the French & Indian War and the Treaty of Paris. Students will complete the Chapter 2 Study Guide on Monday, and we will review the material for the test on Thursday, September 19th.

Reading Logs & fluency reads will go home this week. Please sign and return on Friday.

Remember to read 20 minutes each day!
