Homework for Wednesday, February 7th

1) Read for at least 20 minutes and log your minutes on your February Reading Log
2) Complete your spelling sentences from class. Make sure to use proper punctuation, and use your words properly (to the best of your ability) in your sentences.

** Class Pictures went home today. Check your student's backpacks!

** The Lemonade War is not required reading this week, but students can read the book for independent reading at night, especially if they are looking for a good book. We will be reading it this month,  so they will be ahead of the game!

** Students have begun writing/recording reading responses on Seesaw. I have created some prompts for students who are stuck, PROMPTS FOR READING REFLECTIONS, which have been given to students in paper form and can be found at the top of my blog. This is a work-in-progress, and nothing has been assigned yet, but the idea is that students will create short reflections (written or recorded) on what they have read this week. The main objective of the reflection is for students to communicate what they've been reading, and their thoughts on what they've read as well. As long as those requirements are met, I am open to the manner in which these reflections are conveyed. This is not meant to be a difficult task, and I'm hoping the students find it enjoyable. The examples we have watched in class have been excellent so far!
