Language Arts with Mrs. Woods
Our fourth-graders have done a great job of learning about sharing their opinions through essay-writing. They are now ready to take their skills and apply them to a historical event: The American Civil War. Our writers are spending this week investigating and researching this time in our country's history so that they can apply their essay-writing skills in a new way.
For our next big writing project, we'll be completing a RAFT task. RAFT stands for Role, Audience, Format, and Topic. Each of our fourth-graders will be assuming the role of a historical figure from the Civil War, sharing their opinions about an important event/issue in an attempt to persuade their audience to make a change.

Reading with Mrs. Wreath
In reading, students will master comprehension skills and vocabulary strategies practiced during the week. We will end the week with a weekly reading assessment, also known as a cold read. These assessments correspond to the PARCC testing that the students take in the spring. The cold read consists of two text passages that are new to the students. The passages are very similar and relate back to the genre and background that was discussed earlier in the week. Your student’s workshop book has every comprehension skill and vocabulary strategy for each week. These mini lessons are a great way to practice for the weekly reading assessment.
