We continue with our economy unit through the read aloud of One Hen and Beatrice's Goat. Economy concepts are also being explored through the students guided reading books with Mrs. Hanley.
This week we did a whole class sort on prefixes. We learned about the root or base word and how the prefix changes the meaning of a word. We also continued our study of the Spot and Dot strategy. I have posted videos on the Language Arts tab. Check them out!
We continue our Historical Fiction unit reading Soft Rain and have focused on theme, mood, historical timelines, points of view, and the authors use of details which give us clues as readers. This coming week we will focus on how the author uses details to connect the theme of the story and how characters tend to ask tough questions through out a historical fiction. As we read we continue to learn about how this historical event unfolded in North Carolina.
