Learn about the Saint of The Day: https://www.franciscanmedia.org/sod-calendar/

*****************************************************************************

READING: Differentiated Reading Groups based on fiction, non-fiction, and genre ~ Legend.  

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:   Explore & Discover the Properties of Magnets.

*********************************************************************************************

SOCIAL STUDIES:  All about Canada ~ Project is due March 25. Each day the project is late one point will be deducted.  See rubric that was sent home with directions.  The study of Canada.
