This week in both reading and writing we will be gearing up for our nonfiction unit which will cover research strategies about Extreme Weather along with learning how to write an opinion essay about a topic they feel strongly about. In order to do this, students will be taking pre-assessments in both subjects this week.
In addition, per Fulton County requirements, students will be getting digital citizenship instruction this week; alternating between the reading and writing blocks. We are lucky enough to have a tech teacher here from Kennesaw State University, Mrs. Petersen, who will be helping to deliver these lessons to the students. Finally, students need to continue to read for twenty minutes and record their reading on their logs for homework. They will be introduced to a Google classroom assignment this week as well.
