Students were given an ABC worksheet to do while they read, which is due on Thursday.
Today students continued to read their group novels. There was no assignment given so students who were on the field trip last Friday could make up the assignment.
Students returned to their novels today.
For the assignment, they participated in a post-it note discussion.
Today we are taking the GATES Post-Assessment. This assessment determines reading level growth.
On this, a beautious Star Wars day, we continue to read our group novels.

Students continue their group novels. They were assigned a group ABC Brainstorming worksheet to complete. It is due tomorrow.
Today, I did booktalks on 10 books that students have to choose from for their group novels. Students selected which books they wished to read, and with whom to read the books. We will continue this unit through Friday, May 20th.
