Overview and Homework Chart May 26-30

Reading- Besides our weekly work in Reader’s Workshop, students will finish reading a non-fiction narrative about the use of earbuds and hearing loss. They will answer close-reading questions, drawing details from the text and look for central ideas in the text.  Students will also meet in their Guided Reading groups this week and complete reading skills/strategies.

Writing- Students  will begin prewriting for fiction narratives.  We will then identify story elements in class, and students will identify the story elements in their IR books.

Math- This week we will continue Unit 12:  Probability.  Students will work on lessons 12.6-12.9.  The nit 12 test is scheduled for next Monday, June 2.

Please check out our  blogs.  This week students are blogging memories from the 5th grade.   The link is http://kidblog.org/agkrecik/
