Listen to gain information: "Turtles" (Comprehension questions will be answered orally.)  Review an author's purpose: to entertain, to inform, and to persuade.  Introduce vocabulary and have students use these words in sentences.  Students will read "Turtle Bay" to decide what the author's purpose is.  Students will then write about something that must be done patiently.  The skill of learning to classify and categorize comes next.

Your child will be given a spelling test every Friday. The list of words will come home the first day of the school week (usually Mondays). The last two words on the list are a little more difficult and come with a definition. These are called "Challenge Words". Please help your child learn the definitions as well. Words missed on the test will be practiced on Friday during recess or Self Manager Time.

Please read with your child 20 minutes every night and record times on record sheet.
Return it with your child, check to see if your child understands the vocabulary.
This process will help with comprehension and the learning of new words.
