Students have just completed a book study on a non fiction book. They also competed a poster on their animal, using Pages on their Ipads. They then gave a presentation to the class. These packets will be a heavy portion of their reading grade and I will start entering grades for those in the next week.
We have now begun “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” and are taking notes as we read. Once finished, we will watch the movie and write a comparison paper.
Students are studying pronouns in their grammar books. We are also doing some short writing projects, a paragraph at a time, focusing on Ideas and Organization.
We have been using the Ipads for research and publishing. I will also be assigning some short articles on Readworks to work on skills.
