Peek at the Week
Week of February 25th-March 1st
On Monday, the students will take the Unit 4 Journey’s Test. All of the skills assessed have been taught during the month of February. The students cannot study for this test. It is strictly assessing them on their comprehension skills. To review for the ISAT, the students will practice the questions that they missed on the test. Students will be pulled in small groups. Since instruction will be focused on test preparation, there will be no homework and no Bingo sheet assigned. When students are not working in small groups, they will be reading their guided reading books.
Standard: Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.
The students will pick one of their MEL-CON extended responses to write as a final draft. The final drafts will be graded using the MEL-CON rubric and will be due on Wednesday, February 27th. Because the extended responses are all answering questions pertaining to African-American history picture books, they will be posted for the Ray School Gallery Walk after school on Thursday, February 28th.
Common Core Standard: Integrate Visual Information
As the students are learning about the Aryans, Maurya, Gupta civilizations of India, they will be using visual information to aid in their learning.
