Oct. 27-31, 2014
The second round of book club meetings are scheduled for this week. Students will need to have read the second section of their book prior to the meeting date. Each student will again prepare a journal response to share at the meeting. Each class will have class time on Monday and Tuesday to prepare the journal response. Those who need more time are welcome to take the journal home to finish the assignment. Please refer to the book club page of this website for more information about this activity. Reading groups 1 and 3 will have their book club meetings on Tuesday, Oct. 28th. Groups 6 and 8 will have their meetings on Wednesday, Oct. 29th. Groups 2 and 7 will have their meetings on Thursday, Oct. 30th.
I will introduce the Greek and Latin roots component of our vocabulary study this week. We will start with a few ungraded practice sessions using word parts such as auto-, bio-, -gram and -logy. This component will then be added to the vocabulary quizzes.
Vocabulary quiz four is scheduled for Nov. 3rd for group 6. Groups 1, 2, 7, and 8 will have their quiz on Nov. 4th. Group 3 will have their quiz on November 5th. A link to list four can be found on the vocabulary page of this website.
Finally, Ms. Hollyfield has invited the 5th grade students to visit the library for treats and stories later this week. Each reading group will go the library during the second half of class on Thursday and Friday.
