I co-teach with Mrs. Rittenhouse and Mrs. Bentley during differentiated reading, word study, shared reading, and writing. Please see below for helpful links and weekly focus.
The K-5 Standards define what students should understand and be able to do by the end of each grade. Fundamentally, students in grades K through 5 are focused on developing comprehension strategies that will enable them to manipulate grade-level texts of appropriate complexity, and communicate effectively both in writing and in speaking. Students will begin to anchor their inquiries and responses firmly to the text, whether literary or informational, using increasingly specific and relevant evidence to support their claims and inferences. Students’ analytical skills will extend to identifying main idea/theme, understanding character and plot development, and evaluating the impact of word choice. Additionally, students will identify structural elements in text such as scenes and chapters, distinguish narrative voice, understand the impact of aesthetic elements, and make logical connections. A key component of the CCGPS is the expectation of appropriate grade level complexity in text choices. Complexity levels are assessed based upon a variety of indicators.
