This Week in Literacy

This week we are reading tall tales and discussing the elements of the story that make stories "tall tales."

There are no spelling words this week, but students received next week's words on Thursday.


This week we are completing district benchmarks in reading, writing, and math. We are reading myths and legends to summarize the stories as well as identify examples of cause and effect. We are also looking at cause and effect situations in nonfiction. 

There are no spelling words this week.


We are reading fables to identify key details in the story. We are also exploring how these details can help us determine the moral or lesson in a fable.
