In Readers Workshop, we are beginning an in-depth study of non-fiction. Your child will challenge his/herself by reading books with multiple main ideas, and taking notes regarding most important detials. Information is then synthesized across texts. Students will be writing two papers about Westward Expansion duirng Writer's Workshop. Students should be reading EACH NIGHT for at least 30 minutes (usually Fiction), taking notes on stickies, and logging their progress. Refer to the Reading Contract that was signed in the notebook for information about reflections.
