The children are reading chapter books and writing answers to questions. They are learning to go back to the text to find evidence from the text to support their answers. Our read aloud is a mystery. They are learning that a mystery has five basic but important elements. The five components are; characters, setting, plot, problem and the solution. Good listening skills are needed to listen to for clues in the story and to answer questions about what was read.
The children are starting to write a "persuasive letter". They are writing a letter to someone in their family, community or someone in Springhurst. They will choose topics based on their own interest. They will choose three meaningful arguments or "reasons" to support position. Look for the letters soon!
