Currently: We have started a new content area on the Solar System. Students will be reading information from their Science book, Imagine It, and A to Z books in small groups. Students will be learning the different text features of non-fiction text as opposed to fiction.

Non-fiction Text Features include: Introduction, Table of Contents, pictures with captions, graphs and charts, diagrams, Glossary, Index, and conclusion.


Later, students will be creating their own non-fiction booklets including text features.

  • Guided Reading is the perfect opportunity for the teacher to help students practice reading strategies and skills that are demonstrated during read alouds and shared reading experiences.

  • The teacher guides and supports students usually in a small-group setting as “they talk, read and think their way purposely through” a text selected by the teacher.

  • The text provides enough challenge to slightly stretch students as they practice using their reading strategies and problem solving skills with guidance from the teacher.

Word Wisdom

We are so excited about a new vocabulary program the PTA generously donated for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade called Word Wisdom. Each student received a Word Wisdom workbook that guides them to Unlock, Process, and Apply more than 300 new vocabulary words in the program as well as new vocabulary across the curriculum. With this program, students will take ownership of new vocabulary as they:
  • Discover the meaning of unknown and multiple-meaning words and phrases, use context clues, analyze meaningful word parts and consult reference materials.
  • Demonstrate understanding of word relationships and nuances in word meanings.
  • Acquire and use general academic and domain-specific words and phrases for reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
*At the beginning of each unit, your child will bring home a “Home Connect” letter that suggests activities you can do with your child to reinforce the vocabulary words learned in school. Ask your child about Word Wisdom today!
