In Writing Workshop, we are still studying small moment writing. We are also practicing writing clearly and effectively in short passages. We are now editing for run-on sentences and learning about the CUPS process. The CUPS process is an editing acronym that I use for Capitalization, Understanding, Punctuation, and Spelling.
In Reading Workshop, we are starting individual reading conferences this week. I'll be working closely with your child to pick just right books, comprehension strategies and how to keep track of their thinking.
In Word Study, we are working on making plurals with adding s, es, changing the y to an i and adding es, changing the f to ves, and many irregular words. Please visit my resources page to link up with Spelling City. It's a great way for the kids to practice their words.
*The Scholastic Book Fair is this week! We have several titles that we'd love to have donated to our classroom.
Thank you so much for visiting my page. I plan to update this website weekly to keep you "in the know" about our curriculum and events!
