-Strengthen accuracy, fluency and comprehension.
-Review reading strategies---use a variety of strategies to create meaning- reviewing Skippy Frog: When we are having difficulty sounding out a word, we need to skip the word, read on, then “hop back” and try it again. The sentence often has clues as to what the unknown word could be!

WRITING-Leads & Descriptions
Starting stories with dialogue. For example, rather than beginning a story by saying I went skating”, try using dialogue - “Do you want to go skating?” asked Mom.
Using descriptive words in our sentences…..“I bought a new blue shirt with red stripes.”
MATH FOCUS Subtraction
Use subtraction sentences (8-5) to tell a subtraction story. “There are 8 ducks in a pond. 5 swim away. How many ducks are left in the pond?” Using counters or draw a picture to solve the problem.
Number stories that involve both addition and subtraction: There were 5 dogs playing, 1 more joined them, 2 went home, and 1 ran away. How many dogs are there now?
