Reading-We recently started a fairy tale unit in reading. We have been reading stories like The Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Little Boy Who Cried Wolf, Cinderella, and many others! We have learned about the elements of fairy tales such as characters, problem and solution, element of 3, and setting. We have also been practicing summarizing and retelling stories.
Writing- In writing we have started to study mentor texts of fairy tale adaptations. We have been looking at examples of many different fairy tales that have been adapted to help prepare us to write our own.
Many of our students worked very hard at getting sponsors for our read-a-thon, read like busy beavers, and should now be collecting money from their sponsors!
SBAC- We are currently in the process of taking the Smarter Balance test for ELA (reading & writing). Please make sure that every student is getting plenty of sleep, water, and healthy food!
