2nd Marking Period Reading Levels
In our reading unit we are currently working on an Andrew Clements author study. The children really love his books and are currently enjoying the read aloud of Frindle. Throughout this unit we will continue to study the elements of a fiction text, make inferences while reading and make text to self connections. Andrew Clements books are known for having a school based setting and his characters overcoming a challenging situation that many children can relate to. We will also explore other elements of literature such as poetry, plays and mythology.
In addition, we will continue to practice using the RADD strategy to help students construct short responses. Check out our class page for helpful resources using RADD.
In our current writing unit we are focusing on constructing an informational writing piece. Students will research different topics that are of interest to them.

Throughout the writing unit students will brainstorm, research, draft, revise and edit! Some topics they can choose from are:
