Reading/Language Arts- This week in Reading, we will learn about main idea & detail, word families, and unstressed syllables as we read the novel Holes. We will test over these skills and chapters 21-35 in the novel on Friday.  In Language Arts, we will learn about transitions and words with unstressed syllables with the VCV, VCCV, and VCCCV spelling pattern.  Students will complete packets throughout the week to practice these skills.  They can also practice spelling words on Spelling City.  There will be a test over these skills on Friday.  In Writing, students will write a procedural piece.  Please make sure your child is reading nightly, so they can reach their Accelerated Reader goal.
