We have started guided reading groups. We will also continue to focus on finding the main idea in nonfiction text.


Students have started their next unit, Literary Essay. They will be learning how to write a response essay to a piece of literature.

*Due to a change in the report card, I will be keeping the Persuasive Letters until the end of the card marking. Students will be shown their grade and have a mini-conference with me to go over strengths and weaknesses. If you would like to know your child's grade beforehand, please email me. Thank you for your patience in this matter!
