Our target comprehension skill is “Story Structure” in which students identify setting, characters, plot. This requires them to summarize main events.
Vocabulary: Review short vowels and the VCCV pattern.
Students determine word meaning through the use of context clues.
Fluency: Accuracy: good readers do not have to sound out every word they read. Instead, they recognize words they already know. This allows them to read more fluently and to pay more attention to the meaning of text. We practice rapid sight word reading and put word recognition skills into practice while reading sentences and phrases with automaticity.
Essential Question: How is learning at school different from learning at home?
