This is your child's yellow homework assignment sheet for Rdg./Lang. Arts/Writing- Lesson 26. Be sure your child has this sheet in his/her Rdg. folder every day. Ea. Mon., students will receive this yellow assignment sheet outlining all of the hw assignments for the week as well as important notes for parents. Please be sure your child completes the correct hw ea. day, that you check all papers, & sign ea. assignment so that I will know that you have checked your child's work.

Also, try to listen to your child read ea. night, for at least 20 min. Ask questions about what was read to reinforce comprehension skills.

The Home Letter is also sent home ea. Mon. to keep you abreast of what skills are being covered in Rdg. & what you should be working on at home as well as suggestions for books to pick up at the library for that week.

Please return your child's 4th qtr. Progress Report signed as soon as you have had the opportunity to review it.

This week we will be reviewing the suffix -ion (suggestion, protection, direction) & common final syllables such as -tion, -sion, -ture (motion, tension, picture)

Our Comprehension skill this week is main idea & details-tell important ideas & details about a topic; the main idea is the most important idea in the selection and the supporting details back up the main idea or give more information about the main idea.

Our Comprehension strategy this week is analyze/evaluate-think about what we read & form an opinion about it.

In Grammar, we will be working on abbreviations & reviewing possessive nouns.

Vocabulary Strategy: suffix -ion

Remember: All LATE assignments are lowered 1 letter grade. Words that are capitalized on Spelling tests & Spelling assignments that are NOT proper nouns are marked incorrect.
