Summer School Day 14

Summarize Text was our strategy for today. I didn't look at the card until now and see that my student made a mistake, so he will have to fix that tomorrow :)

We started a new unit today, Traveling West on the Oregon Trail.

Summer School Day 12

Today we added Voracious Reading to expand our vocabulary.

There are now actually TWO voracious reading headings on our board.

Fluency- read the same thing over and over again such as a play.
Expand Vocab- reading all different types of material.

Summer School

Dear Parents~

When looking at your child's timed math tests, there are lines or boxes ect. marking what your child did in the two minutes. After the time is up, I try to draw lines around what they finished. It gets a little crazy when they skip around. :) Then I ask them to complete the rest of the problems. :)

Summer School Day 11

Use word parts to determine the meaning of words.
Skip the word, then come back.

Summer School Day 10

Predict what will happen and use text to confirm.

Summer School Day 9- more
