Sergeeff's Weekly Literacy Blog! (Jan. 30 - Feb. 3)

This week the students will receive new reading groups as well as new spelling groups! In reading group, the students will explore nonfiction books and discuss. As a whole group, we will be looking at "biographies" and writing our own! 

The students will receive a new reading log for the week. This log will be due Friday, February 3rd. The students will also be receiving new spelling lists and a spelling menu that is also due Friday, February 3rd. For the second half of the year, we will have two spelling groups (blue and pink - no green). I have increased the level of difficulty for all students. If you feel like the intensity is too much at home, please contact me and we can discuss a level that fits best. The next spelling test will be held on Friday, February 10th

All students who have turned in four reading log's for the month will be receiving their first personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut! Please look for your child's coupon in their Monday Folder.

Dinner Table Talking Points

We know that kids often say they have nothing to talk about when asked about their day at school. Here are a few suggestions to help get them talking about what they learned and experienced this week. Ask your child...

1. To tell you what a "How To" is.

2. To tell you three examples of "How To" topics.

3. To tell you what a biography is.

4. To tell you what book they are reading in reading group.

5. To tell you what spelling and reading group they are in.
