Last week students wrote a Word Power (what is commonly referred to as spelling work) screening assessment. This assessment will be used to create groupings of like-levelled spellers for our Word Power focus. We will launch the program next week with a lesson and an assignment, with a quiz to follow the next week.
This week will be a busy one in Language Arts as we celebrate the life of Martin Luther King Jr. and begin learning about civil rights. (Students, to show Ms. B. you've read the blog, present her with a note that explains who Martin Luther King Jr. is on Monday before O'Canada!) We will also continue working on our fiction writing, and of course, we will be reading!
