07. Week of October 10, 2017

Hi Parents, 

Here is what's going on in ELA this week: 

1. Memoir writing - The students will work on revising and editing their current draft of their memoir this week.  The final draft is due on Monday, 10/16.  The draft must submitted as done on Google Classroom, but it does not need to be printed. Please take a few minutes to look over your child's writing with him or her and review the rubric to make sure the standards have been met. 

2. Characterization - In guided reading this week, the students will review the various techniques author's use to develop a character.  They will determine a character's traits based on his/her words, thoughts and actions.  Students will practice using evidence to support their claims about the character's most prominent traits. 

3. Academic Vocabulary- The words this week are context and procedure. 

Thanks for your help.  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  Please let me know if you have any questions.
