The composition notebook will need to be in class EVERY day. We glue the notes and other items in the notebook so we DO NOT lose them. :) We are also writing notes in here that will need to be used to study.
****NEW ASSIGNMENT - Kids are expected to be reading 20-30 minutes each day. I will be randomly selecting each student's name - one student each day will be sharing what his/her book is about. They will communicate with the class for 2-3 minutes about the book they are currently reading. If they just finished a book, then they will tell about that book. Students must have the book he/she is reading with he/she in class. :) This will go in as a QUIZ grade.
Students have a purple homework folder for Language Arts. The folder is for carrying their paper on the side with the white flap and transporting the class book on the purple side. If there is no chapter asigned please make sure your Orca student is reading something. :)
**Our main focus right now is central idea and details as well as always focusing on vocabulary. We are reading World Witout Fish. The students continue to analyze the text and are reading and identifying key individuals, events and ideas in order to understand how the writer develops a topic.
Library Day is Wednesday 2/14 - We love BOOKS
***Please remind your student to come in and make work up if they are out of class sick or for any reason. These assignments MUST be made up.
