Shared Reading 

  • Tuesday, March 17th: Listen to story (on YouTube below) - Tell someone your favorite part and why.

  • Wednesday, March 18th: Listen to story (optional) Retelling sequencing cards

  • Thursday, March 19th: Make a connection

  • Friday ,March 20th: Opinion 


  • Informative: Watch the video about rabbits below. Use the informative writing template in the packet to write an introduction, facts, and a conclusion. If you have EPIC (see Guided Reading below for more information), I will also add non-fiction books about rabbits. You can use these books to research and include facts in your writing.

  • Write me a letter and I'll respond- all you need to do is take a picture of it and email or send me a message in Remind. Don't forget a letter has 4 parts to it: date, opening, body and closing

Write Reader

Additional Writing Option: Below you will find a link for a FREE resource called Write Reader. Students started learning how to create books online and they enjoy using this format. You can sign up for a free account at:  link: https://app.writereader.com/login

Students can use Write Reader to create their informative writing on rabbits (or use the informative paper provided in the packet). They can also research another topic and write create additional books. This may require some guidance.

Link sharing is available so if you copy the book link,  share your book with me through my email: hkaraffa@auburn.k12.il.us 

Guided Reading

I highly encourage you sign up for a free trial (30 days) of EPIC. The site has thousands of books that are fun and engaging. I often put collections of books in student mailboxes on EPIC that they can read or do “research” on. EPIC also has a DRA tab that has leveled books so students are reading books at their independent or instructional level. Please let me know if you would like your child’s reading level. Below you will find reading strategies that your child should be using as they read. When they finish reading, have your child retell the stories and ask questions about it. If it’s a non-fiction book, have them share facts that they have learned. In the documents section above, I have included reading response sheets that can be used to build comprehension skills. 

When you sign up enter class code: qyt2310, click on your child's name, & sign up for the 30 day free trial. This will connect their school account to your home account.
