ELA: Reading & Writing week of 04.11.16

Last week you started preparation for STAAR Reading and began work on poetry. This week, you’ll learn the predictable vocabulary of the STAAR Reading test and some ways to deal with the different genres of passages the test has. In writing, your poetry immersion work will continue alongside some collecting practice. Friday we’ll take the end of year Istation assessment on the computerized program.


Reading – the usual! Read 150 minutes and log online at Whooo’s Reading. Answer two questions of your choice at the same site.

Writing – for each class this week (3 total), collect one entry of poetry writing in your Writer’s Notebook. This might mean you try again the strategy learned in class, just by writing more and different content. You could also try out something new in your notebook, based on what you’re learning makes poetry poetry! This work will be used in your writing process for poetry this unit of study.
