Writing: This week, we are continuing to work on our Opinion pieces by responding to our reading. Students are reflecting on our mentor text Fox, or on a given short story. Students have developed a thesis, and now are working to support that thesis with reasons and evidence directly from their short story. We are developing our pieces by including quotes from the story and expanding on our ideas with elaboration.
Language Arts: This week, we are continuing to review language arts standards from earlier in the semester. Students will be working on the major ones that will come up continuously in their writing, and will be expected to focus on the ones that they need to work on specifically using their writing pieces and language arts interactive journals.
Standards for this Week:
ELACC4RI8: Explain how an author uses reasons and evidence to support particular points in a text.
ELACC4W1: Write opinion pieces on topics or texts, supporting a point of view with reasons.
