Welcome back! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday break. We are jumping right into our unit with Unit 3 Pre-Assessments (on Commonlit.org) & the Reading Plus Bench Mark Assessment.
I will be sending up the Reading Plus reports next week for students and parents/guardians to see how their student has been growing in the program. We have seen significant gains in fluency, comprehension, vocabulary, as well as the 9 reading skills: Close Reading, Main Ideas & Themes, Interaction of Ideas Unsorted, Use of Language, Text Structure, Point of View, Image Scaffolds, Reasoning & Rhetoric, and Comparative Reading.
Students will continue to have weekly Reading Plus lessons that are due every Sunday by 11:59 P.M (except Holiday Breaks).
Below is the introduction to our unit. Please read through each slide for make-up work assignments.
Students walked around to each poster and reflected on the image/quote above it. Students analyzed each photo in order to make connections to our Unit 3 theme. After writing their responses to each poster and responding to classmates, each student wrote a reflection and turned it in for a grade.
