Students continued to practice summarizing using the IVF model. We practiced writing concise summaries without details. The next step will be to use these sentence summaries as our topic sentence in writing a more detailed summary of what we read. Prefixes and suffixes were discussed along with our reading as we practiced determining the meaning of various ones.
Tomorrow we will hope to finish our free verse final drafts as well as bring our measurement unit to somewhat of a close before one last fun project next week where we get to put our measuring knowledge to the test! :)
A big thank you to those families bringing in items for our hot chocolate celebration next Tuesday! It is sure to be lots of fun and of course, greatly appreciated!
