May 4 - It's hard to believe that it is already May!! Please take a Star Reading this week. So far only one student has done it and I shared his wonderful results with him!
You will be reading a story called Rikki-Tikki-Tavi this week. I have even posted a link that has someone reading it to you on Actively Learn! Please follow along on the Actively Learn site  Period 1 has the most people signed up for Actively Learn so far!! Let's see who can follow along and get some practice in reading and Language Arts this week by logging on to the app and if you need the class codes they are listed above! Your assignment will be to read this story (or have the lady read to you) and follow along on the link that has the picture of the mongoose on it. It will ask you some questions before you begin the reading so toggle back and forth the start of the story so that you are able to pause the vocal reading and answer some of the questions on Actively Learn so that I can see your progress!! Happy Reading!

May 11th 
Let's read!! This week I will introduce you to a chapter book that we will read together weekly. I will assign you chapters to read each week and we will discuss the book together when we meet during our class time on Monday mornings! The title of the book is "Fallout" and it is written by an author named Todd Strasser. Please read through MyOn and follow along so that you can be part of our discussion weekly! If you are reading a book at home already, it is ok to be reading two different books! If you are not reading, it's time to do so!!
