Reading- Reader’s Workshop
ReadAloud with Accountable Talk Objectives for the week:
We have now finished the novels, Because of Mr. Terupt, and There’s a Boy in the Girl’s Bathroom. Both had similar themes, teaching us to accept differences in others, and to be kind in all situations.
Through our new novel, A Fish in a Tree, we will also be looking at theme, character change, and accepting differences. Ask your child about this new inspiring novel.
Determine a theme of a story, drama,or poem from details in the text; summarize the text.
ELA FOCUS OBJECTIVES for the WEEK-(REVIEW)
We are using a “Balanced Literacy” approach during our Reading block. “Rules”is the 4th novel unit we will use during our balanced literacy block. Students are completing a variety of literacy activities using this novel, in addition to self-selected texts. Students are reading and selecting Independent Reading Books, which are read daily. Students will be required to read at least 20 minutes each night. Each child will have an AR (Accelerated Reading) goal, which they will be expected to meet, every 9 weeks.
Explain major differences between poems, drama, and prose, and refer to the structural elements of poems (e.g.,verse, rhythm, meter) and drama (e.g., casts of characters, settings,descriptions, dialogue, stage directions) when writing or speaking about atext.
Compare and contrast the point ofview from which different stories are narrated, including the difference between first- and third-person narrations.
