Writing: This week, we are continuing our unit on Opinion writing! We will be graphing our pre-assessment results in our data binders in small focus groups. Over the last couple of weeks, we practiced opinion entries and rough drafting. This week, we are honing in on one topic that we can use for our big opinion piece for this unit, and working on providing evidence and reasons for this topic by answering when, why, or how.
Language Arts: This week, we are continuing to learn about resources and skills we can use to identify unknown vocabulary words. We are focusing on reference materials in the classroom and in the Media Center. We are also working on choosing these words and phrases to convey our ideas precisely in speaking and writing.
Standards for this Week:
4RI3: Explain events, procedures, ideas, or concepts in a historical, scientific, or technical text, including what happened and why, based on specific information in the text.
