Students in our class will be learning vocabulary to identify the members within a family. They are using vocabulary learned from this topic to write sentences and show how members of their family are related to each other.
Students will also be working on a small project to create an illustrated family tree that they will be sharing with the class. This project will be due Friday and will be recorded as a grade.
We will also be reading The Giving Tree, by Shel Silverstein, to introduce words to describe the appearance of characters as well as their feelings and actions throughout the story. Students will then compare and contrast the characters and learn to map the plot.
Warm ups are completed and discussed in class daily to review or highlight important skills that will prepare them for end of grade assessments.
Students are responsible to check for accuracy and turn them in every Friday. Students need to label and date each warm up, before they turn them in for a grade.
