This week we are editing our Feature Articles. Students traveled to the computer lab to print out pictures to use as text features. In addition, students looked at types of text structure. All non-fiction text is organized by its structure. Identifying text structure will allow one to focus on the ideas of the text. Examples of text structure include: sequence, cause and effect, compare and contrast, and description. All types of text have 'signal words' that reveal the type of structure.

Spelling will resume next week.
Reading Logs are due this Wednesday.
Book Club will start on Wednesday. A family letter was sent home on Monday explaining the purpose and expectations of Book Club.

In case you didn't know, NO school on Thursday and Friday

Happy Trails,
Mr. Rabinowitz
