This week in Literacy

This week in literacy we will continue to focus on informational text. Last week we looked at cause and effect . This week we will investigate text that compares and contrasts.  Vin diagrams are often used as a graphic organizers for this type of text.  We will also practice recognizing signal words that are commonly used to express comparisons or contrasts.  This pdf. is a good example.  In writing, we will begin drafting out our feature articles. This last week, students work endlessly to put their thoughts into outlines. We hope to have our final copies finished before Thanksgiving.

In read aloud we continue to carve out time to for our book, The Watsons go to Birmingham.

Here is a link to a blog created by one our 4th grader, Kindal. Check it out!

Don't forget to vote and set you clocks back one hour.
