Mrs. Ackley’s Newsletter for Jan.27th-31st Reading: English: We are working hard to learn the rest of the rules for writing from our Easy Grammar workbooks. This week we will cover how to use nouns in a sentence and how/why we write compound sentences. We will be working on the following pages: Mon: 65-66 and 221-224 Tues.: 67-68 and 225-226 Wed.: 69-71 and 228-229 Thurs.: 75-76 and 230-231 Fri.: Start a Valentine letter for someone. Homework will be anything not finished in class. Half of the students will read in leveled reader groups and have to answer questions based on what they read using skills they have already learned. The other half will read the book Shiloh and answer questions that reviews information from the book. Students will have one cold read a day. I will discuss the questions with them and the thought process needed to answer it, but they must answer and read the story on their own. Worldy Wise Lesson 12 Homework: Monday: Wordly Wise 12a, any English that was not completed in class, and re-read the Scholastic and check the answers. Tues.: Wordly Wise 12b, and complete English.

Social Studies: We will read a Scholastic magazine on Monday and answer questions from it and complete a worksheet that goes with it. I will allow students to bring it home Monday night to re-read with someone and have their answers checked before turning it in for a grade.
