Writing: This week, we are continuing to work on our informational unit. We are focusing on wrapping up our pieces through revising, editing, and finalizing each section. Students are working to include text features and quotations within their pieces to support their biggest and most important ideas. We will have a bend grade this week on leads, endings, and transitions as well.
Language Arts: This week, we are reviewing prepositional phrases. Students will identify prepositional phrases within sentences and then be expected to use them in their own writing. Students also focus on other grammar skills when looking over these exemplar sentences in order to reinforce our language arts standards from week to week.
Standards for this Week:
ELACC4RL3: Describe in depth a character, setting, or event in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text.
ELACC4W2: Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly.
ELACC4L1e: Form and use prepositional phrases.
