I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Midwinter February Break! A few important reminders and updates for March:
- PTC Fast is up and running for March conferences. Please sign up using the code GV11267793. I look forward to meeting with each of you!
- We will be having our Wingspan Showcase on Friday, March 8th at 8:30 AM in the auditorium. We hope you are able to attend!
In reading and writing, we will be focusing our attention on test prep while continuing our reading and writing curriculum simultaneously. Students will continue to meet and read in historical fiction book clubs during reading workshop and will be analyzing and interpreting their historical fiction texts through writing about reading in their reader’s notebooks and through their book club discussions. Students will continue their practice of using evidence to support their thinking throughout their work in their clubs. In writing workshop, we will be continuing our work on essay by focusing on the literary essay and writing essays based on short stories and texts. The students will continue to use a boxes and bullets structure in this writing and will work on picking their best evidence to support their thinking in these essays.
