Reading- Read a story or review sight word listx__________________

-This week we are reading On the Way to the Pond. The genre of this story is a fantasy. The author’s purpose in writing this story is to entertain the reader. We will be writing a story about a make believe animal that acts like a person. These are characteristics of fantasy.

-The skills for this week are identifying the setting of the story and reading ahead in the story. Students can use the pictures to make inferences about a character using body language. Students need to be able to read the story and tell you some of the facts. A strategy I use is to read a couple of pages and have the student stop and tell you about them. Then return to the story and read a few more pages. This helps the concepts stick with them as they read.

-Our spelling this week will have the /er/, /ir/, and /ur/ patterns.  

-In Science we will be talking about forests and animals that live there.
