English Language Arts

This Week in ELA: 

  • Students will complete book 37. 
  • Spelling words: eyes, before, flew, over, away  
  • We have a Spelling test every Friday. The words are from the current book we are reading. I use the red words (in the bottom box of words on the inside front cover of the book. We use 5 words. If there are not five in the last box, I choose another one from that same page.) 

Things to practice at home: 

  • When your child is reading to you, stop them at the end of each page/paragraph and ask them to retell what it was about. Make sure they answer in complete sentences with details.
  • When your child goes on reading eggs, have them practice logging in themselves. firstname.lastname@rak12     password- Knights1
