This week we will be studying Spelling words that have the –ar, -or, & -ore sound
Our Comprehension skill this week is author’s purpose; we will be using text
details to tell why an author writes. An author writes to inform or describe,
to persuade, or to entertain.
Our Comprehension strategy this week is summarize; we will tell the important parts
of the text in our own words.
In Grammar, we will be working on subject/verb
agreement. The subject of a sentence and the verb (predicate) must agree in
number, tense, & gender. Most verbs in the present tense end with –s when
the subject is singular; some verbs, though, end with –es such as those that
verbs that end with s, sh, ch, x, or z when they are used with a singular noun.
If the subject is plural, we do not add –s or –es to the verb.
Vocabulary Strategy: in-, im- (meaning “not”) incorrect, improper
We are continuing to work on writing the Reading Extended
Response. Students must remember to make connections-text to text, text to
self, & text to world. They must cite their evidence from the text to back
up what they write: “In the text it says, The author stated, I learned in the
story…” Students have already received a handout that they are keeping in their
ISAT folder that lists a variety of stem statements that students can use to
cite evidence from the text. This week they will receive some sample Reading
Extended Responses. Please review them with your child at home.
LATE assignments are lowered 1 letter grade. Words that are
capitalized on Spelling tests & Spelling assignments that are NOT proper
nouns are marked incorrect.
