Guided Reading is differentiated to meet students' learning needs. We consistently build on the following skills: decoding, fluency, phonological awareness, vocabulary, setting, inferences, understanding literary elements [theme, main idea, setting, point of view] predict, connect, clarify, analyze, and summarize leading to full comprehension.

READ, READ, & READ!  Students are to read each night!  The more you read the better reader you become. Did you know reading daily helps build fluency and comprehension?  Helpful tips:  If you don't know what a word is try sounding it out; find a chunk of the word that you can read, or use the blends we are learning.  You can also use the story pictures to help you.  It's always fun to read with a parent or a friend!


SCIENCE:  Continue to investigate and understand the basic types, changes, and seasonal patterns of weather.


SOCIAL STUDIES:  Continue to investigate and understand various types of communities with a focus on urban, suburban, and rural communities.  Project Due MONDAY, January 14, 2019.
