Next week we will continue our normal schedule by reading Unit 5, lesson 5; McBroom the Rainmaker. With this story we will be discussing cause and effect and tall tales. We will also begin our writing for Children's Book Week and continue our class reading of 'Bud, Not Buddy.' We will take our time and read the book together in class. There will be multiple skills we will be covering while reading. Students will be having tests on some of the chapters as we move though the book. We will also have a culminating activity when we finish the book that will count as their book report grade this quarter.
While reading students should be thinking about what ways McBroom is a creative thinker. Also if a story like this is mostly funny or silly using details from the selection to support their opinion.
*Please have your child read for 20 minutes every school night. Logs will be sent home on Monday and should have a parent's signature for each session and then turned in the next Monday.*
