Welcome to the first full week of October AND the first full week of Autumn!! Students in 5th and 6th grade are off to a wonderful start in Language Arts!! I am very proud of all of them. They certainly are going to be my rock stars!! Thank you to the many parents and families who were able to make it on Friday to the unveiling of our "Butterfly Garden". It was a great event thanks to Ms. Comba and Ms. Barkin!! 

Here are the lessons for this week in Language Arts:

Language Arts - Week of October 02, 2017:

5th grade: In Reading, students are working with fiction texts on the following skills:

  • Characterization (learning about the character's speech, thoughts, actions, and effect on other characters in the text.)
  • Plots and Subplots
  • Character Traits of the main characters in their text

* I am using the fiction book Firebug (a mystery genre) to model these skills and then students are independently and in small groups, practicing these skills. *

                 In Writing, students are working on their personal narratives. They have chosen a significant life event that has happened to them or their family and they are writing it as a story. This week, students are working on writing their problem in the story. They will also make sure they have subject-verb agreement, capitalization of all proper nouns, and quotation marks anytime someone is speaking.

Homework this week for 5th grade:

  • Reading Log (Students need to read everyday for 30 minutes, write a summary, include at least 3 vocabulary words, and have a parent sign everyday.)
  • Reading logs are due on Friday (Friday, October 6, 2017)

 

6th Grade:  In Reading, students are working with fiction texts on the following skills:

  • Characterization (learning about the character's speech, thoughts, actions and effects on other characters in the text.)
  • Plots and Subplots
  • Character Traits of the main character in their text

* I am using the fiction book The Skin I'm In (a realistic fiction book) to model these skills and then students are independently and in small groups (Book Clubs), practicing these skills. *

                 In Writing, students are working on their personal narratives. They have chosen a significant life event that has happened to them or their family and they are writing it as a story. They will also need to explain how this significant event has changed their life. This week, students are working on their problem in their story. They will also make sure they have subject-verb agreement, capitalization of all proper nouns and quotation marks anytime someone is speaking.

  • Students will use RACE to answer the questions. (R- Restate the question, A- Answer the question, C- Cite evidence from the text, E- Explain the evidence)
