For January and part of February we will be reading Mr. Popper's Penguins. As we read this fun and descriptive novel the students will also have opportunities to read and learn about penguins. I am excited for the opportunity we have to tie this novel into our writing in Ms. Girard's class. The students will have the opportunity this month to work on a variety of writing generes. They have begun by using their imaginations to write a fiction story about penguins. As the month progresses the students will be able to write a nonfiction piece about penguins as well as an opinion paper on penguins. What a fun month of reading and writing we have ahead!
For our grammar lessons we will begin our year by working on kinds of sentences and subjects and predicates. I am linking a few games that will be a good review and fun practice for these topics.
