Establishing a Reading Life: find a book you want to read at your appropriate level, read as if you're in the book, figure out confusing parts (reread), note important things to share later, do the work the book is requesting to understand it.
Reading Journals: read and respond with writing to answer specific prompts about the book you are reading. Be prepared to present your response to the class and answer relevant questions. Begin reading non-fiction passages with document-based questions for reading comprehension and critical thinking.
Writing: "Writer's Express" concentration on ending marks and commas, begin our "Lucy Calkins" unit on "Narratives". Learn to take small moments in our lives and turn them into short stories.
