  • This week in Reading:

    We will continue reading our new novel this week: 

    Because of Winn Dixie by Kate DiCamillo


    We will read chapters 1-4 the week of October 6-9. We will continue with chapters 5-8 during the week of October 13-16. We will review on October 20 and test chapters 1-8 with vocabulary words on Wednesday, October 21. After our test on Wednesday, we will continue reading with chapters 9 and 10. We will introduce the new standard of point of view in these 2 chapters. 

    The words to the book and the read a-louds are located on my Google Classroom. You are encouraged to read the chapter again each night with your child to practice the skills we've gone over in class. 

    These words will be on the test. Your child needs to know the word, what it means, and how to use the word in a sentence.
