Mrs. Walls' Literacy Blog (Week of 4.29.19)

In reading this week, students will read a poetry book, My Stars, to begin identifying important elements of poetry such a rhyme and descriptive and expressive language. This book provides a good cross-curricular connection to our recent space unit. Students will also read the decodable book Joan's Goats and Moe's Crows to practice the long -o sounds.

In writing this week, students will begin writing a rough draft of the animal they researched using their outlines.

This week, students will learn the "oe" sound.

This week, students will continue learning about correct capitalization within a sentence by capitalizing months, holidays, and names of places.  They will also practice writing the date correctly (month day, year).
