Our spelling focus will be suffix –ing. The spelling homework will be writing good complete sentences using all of the spelling words. We will have a lesson on the capitalization of proper nouns (historical events, documents, book titles). We will also have a lesson on the capitalization of proper adjectives (languages, races, nationalities). We will prewrite and begin drafting of an expository essay over our favorite season.
Reading (Homework: Read 20-30 minutes each night.)
We will begin the week by reviewing fiction elements and summaries. Then we will move into our new lessons of drama! Students will learn to identify the parts of drama and compare how they are similar/different to a fiction story. We will be reading a drama throughout the week and spend time discussing the different parts. The students will analyze and make inferences over the drama.
