Reading-Between this week and next, we will begin our small groups for guided reading where the students will work on reading skills aimed just for them. In addition to this, we will be learning about folktales focusing specifically on the "message" or "moral" of the tale.
Social Studies- This is an exciting week as we will have our in school field trip to experience many of the traditions that the Creek and Cherokee had. This hands-on experience will enlighten the students and make the standard less abstract!
Writing- During writing time we will be introducing "Mountain Language" which will help to build the students' English skills, many of which relate to our standards. The idea behind this is that they will become better readers and writers of the English language. Also, we will continue our discussions on prefixes.
