This week we will be diving into Unit 3 Lesson 5 of our Reading and Language Arts book. We will be reading “The Stranger and the Soup” , the following is a summary of what this story is about: A mysterious stranger appears in a village that is suffering a food shortage due to drought. Although he
is not welcomed at first, the stranger has a secret ingredient to help the hungry villagers survive a harsh winter. The students will be practicing the following comprehension strategies: visualizing, summarizing and asking and answering questions. In phonics we will be learning about the long i sound spelled _igh, _ie, _y, i, and i_e . We will finish Math chapter 6 Measurement. This will be a very fast chapter so make sure your children are doing their homework. We will also complete our unit in Science : The Water Cycle.
