Reading- Ultimate Field Trip: Blast Off!
Our story will help us generate questions in order to summarize information. Our vocabulary words will be used in context to help us better understand the meanings. We will talk about how good readers always try to generate questions as they read. Looking for clues in the text will help us summarize important information and improve our comprehension.
Genre: nonfiction with text features (captions, photos, charts)
Skill: generating questions; more work with sentence combining
Vocabulary: mission, disaster, environment, zone, gravity, maze, adjusted, function
Spelling- Words with /ar/ and /or/ sounds
Pre-tests are given on Mondays. Final test will be on Friday.
25 words on the list (each child has a list in their binder)
