This is your child’s yellow homework assignment sheet for Rdg./Lang.
Arts/Writing- Lesson 7. 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. Students have already received their monthly Reading log to complete for
September, due Sept. 30 with 10 books.
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.
This week we will be studying Spelling words that have three-letter
clusters or consonant blends: scr, spr, str, thr
Our Comprehension skill this week is text and graphic features. We will
learn how words & art work together to tell a story.
Our Comprehension strategy that we will be using to
develop the above skill is analyze & evaluate. We will think about what we
have read & form an opinion about it.
In Grammar, we will be working more on verb
tense-past, present, & future tense verbs. We will also be reviewing
synonyms-words that have the same or similar meaning as another word.
In Writing, we will be working on an opinion
paragraph-expressing our opinion in a paragraph.
Remember to review all graded papers with your child. Please
return any papers stamped-“Parents Please Sign.”
Reminder: Words that are capitalized on Spelling
tests & Spelling assignments that are NOT proper nouns are marked
incorrect. Late assignments are lowered one letter grade.
