Use EPIC to research other books on skunks (class code: qyt2310). I will add non-fiction books about skunks and they will be in your child's EPIC mailbox.
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
As part of shared reading this week, students have 2 writing assignments.
How-To Writing: Write how to decorate Easter eggs
Opinion Writing: Write a letter to the Easter Bunny explaining why/why not you would make a good assistant
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 login here: https://app.writereader.com/login.
The class code is rdv1 and the username is child's first name (first letter uppercase).
Students can use Write Reader to create their informative writing (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.
I should be able to view all books as students work on them! I can't wait to see them!
I highly encourage you sign up for EPIC (free until June 30th). 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.
