This week our root of the week is GRAD and GRESS which means to step. The quiz is Friday.
We are finishing up our study of context clues. The cold read for this skill is Thursday. This is a major skills test so students will have the chance to earn an "owl" by making an "A" on this test! It is a cold read so students don't need to study.
EXTRA CREDIT : TIC TAC TOE assignment: Students may select 3 choices from the board. The choices must be in a line and completed with the root Grad or Gress. The completed TIC TAC TOE board is worth up to 10 extra credit points on the cold read and is due Thursday.
There is no assigned book for this class and no daily homework. However each week our class will have a root of the week. On Monday, each student will get a list of 10 words that all contain the same root. We will study the words during the week with the quiz on Friday. Students will need to study their list for the quiz on Friday. A complete list of the root word can be found on my website as a PDF file.(Look under first nine week root word lists.) We will study the lists in order they appear.
I look forward to sharing my love of reading this year.
