Ms. O'Neal's Owls

Skills for the week Jan 14-18

Reading: Skill - We will be reading another class novel. This book is called Small Steps by Peg Kehret. It is an autobiography about her childhood. I will use this book to model how to pick out character traits and specific details throughout her ordeal of battling polio.

Language Arts: Students will read short biographies to pick out what character traits they have in common. All of this is getting the students ready for our next major project which is Live Museum.

Night Writes : Students will choose which topic they want to write about. I will give the calendar out on Tuesday.

Social Studies: We will be studying missions and why they were important.


We have a computer reading program called NEWSELA. In this program students can pick from a variety of articles to read. These pieces are all nonfiction.
