            -Mark important parts of a book with a post-it or bookmark

            -Talk about important parts of the book with someone

 * Avid Readers like to talk about important parts of books with other people.  Sometimes, it helps to mark the pages as you are reading them by putting a post-it or a bookmark on that page.  You can even draw a picture or a few words on your post-it so you can remember why you wanted to talk about that page. Sometimes an important part in the book may make us:

            - Have a strong feeling

 -Remind us of something we have done

- Make us laugh

-Make us wonder…why?  Or, What is going to happen next?

On Seesaw, complete “Avid Readers: Session 3” activity

Happy Friday. There are no new assignments. Today marks the close of the second "work in progress" window. Work assigned May 16th-June 1st is due by today. Any questions, let me know. :)

Happy Thursday! :)

 

Literacy:

* Writing (15 minutes or less) (to be completed over the whole week)

* This week, you can catch up on some writing assignments that you have not completed since we started “remote learning”.  I will be looking through the writing work you have submitted to me. If you have not done something, now is the time to do so!  Below is a list of what I asked to see (you can find detailed directions for writing activities on that specific week’s plan)

* 2 persuasive writing pieces (weeks of 3/30 & 4/6)

* 2 persuasive posters with writing (week of 4/27)

* writing a story with 3 pages (beginning, middle, end) (option from 5/5)

* writing a Fairytale (week of 5/26)

* Please submit this work to me before Wednesday, June 10th so I can determine some of your grades.  Parents… have your child do their work independently.  It is not supposed to be perfect.  Just tell them what to do and see what they produce.  Then, send me a picture… even if it is not correct!  Students who do not complete the persuasive writing pieces will receive a #1 in this spot on their report card.  This is the only writing area we did not cover in the classroom.   

 ** If you have completed the assignments above and sent me a photo you can use this week to practice writing skills, work on handwriting in the lines, or write a new story of your choice.  J

 

* Fundations (less than 10 minutes)

* Watch the digraph video to practice with drilling these letters/sounds https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4RN7iLx3cY

* On SeeSaw, complete the “Short E and Long E” activity.

* Also, complete any activities not already done.

* Snap Word Practice (less than 10 minutes)

            * Choose how you want to practice today!

 

* Reading (to be completed over the whole week)

Avid Readers like to talk about important parts of books with other people.  It helps to mark the pages as you are reading them by putting a little post-it on that page, or by making a bookmark for those parts.  But, you can’t just leave them blank!  By putting a picture or a few words on your post-it, you can remember why you wanted to talk about that page without having to reread it. Maybe there is a spot that gives you a “text to self, text to text, or text to world” thought (I know you always liked it when that happened at school!).  Or, maybe a page in the book made you have a strong feeling.  By marking the pages, you can remember better what you wanted to share with someone about your book.  Give it a try this week!  Read a book by yourself and figure out how you can mark your pages to tell someone all about what you read.  In school, we had reading partners to share with each day.  Now, you still need a partner!  Ask someone at home to help you this week!

* Sometimes, when I finish a book, I also like to share what I thought about it with others.  However, instead of just telling them, I like to write a book review.  This way - I can share my ideas about a book with other readers.  The purpose of doing a book review is to help people decide whether or not this particular book would interest them enough to read it.  Reviews are kind of like a trailer to a movie!  It is just a sneak peek of a book- before reading the whole book!  Like the wonderful smell that comes from baking cookies, book reviews persuade readers to want to taste (read) the book for themselves!

* Pick 2 books this week to write a review about (1 fiction and 1 non-fiction). On Seesaw, complete the 2 book review forms (there is one for each).

* Lastly, as you are reading this week, take some time to think about feelings and why the characters feel the way that they do.  Often, character’s feelings change throughout the book.  Happy and sad are not the only ones!

* On Seesaw, complete the “Character’s Feelings” activity.

 

* RAZ-kids (10-15 minutes minimum)

*  Log in and choose “level up” from the student portal

* Pick a story from the list. In order for the story to be marked complete, students need to listen to the book, read it, and take the quiz (not all books have a quiz)
