IWe are into our second week of unit 2. The students learned a lot about context clues. It was exciting to see them figure out the meanings of the unknown words, just by using clues in the text. They were introduced to some pretty rigorous words this week. We are working on affixes and the meanings of those this week. Then, we will put it all together in a writing activity. It should be fun.
Here are this week's assignments:
Monday: DLR 5-M (affixes); Context clues w/s; Book talk conferences
Tuesday: DLR 5-T; review preformative unit 2; Affixes activity; book talk conferences
Wednesday: DLR 5-W; affixes/context clues writing; book talk conferences
Thursday: DLR 5-TH, affixes/context clues exchange; book talk conferences
Friday: DLR quiz #5; weeblies
Regular clubs this week.
