FUNdations
Unit 4 introduces the bonus letter rule. Please refer to the parent letter sent home on 11/11 for specifics on how this skill is taught.

Students will also be introduced to the glued sound -all.

**Be sure to review Trick Words regularly.  They should be able to be read "in a snap".

Reading Workshop


We are diving deep into "fiction".  Our fiction unit exposes students to both realistic fiction and fantasy.  Students will learn how to retell, summarize, identify internal and external character traits, and make personal connections to texts.


(*www.starfall.com is a great beginning reader site*   

Take a look at the Learn To Read link.)
 

Language Arts/Writing

*In Grammar we are learning all about sentences.  We are reviewing capitalization, punctuation, sentence types, and complete sentences vs. fragments.

*We are currently working on our first published writing pieces!

Units: Launching, Nonfiction: All About Books, Poetry, and Personal Narrative

Spelling 
We are stepping away from a traditional weekly spelling list and test again this year.  Instead, spelling will be embedded in our phonics program (FUNdations) and Writer's Workshop.  Spelling will be assessed formally during FUNdations unit tests, and informally through daily application in authentic writing.
