Spelling List 11
Today students continued their small group work reading Island of the Blue Dolphins and The Golden Cadillac.
Students listened to the end of The Speckled Band- A Sherlock Holmes mystery. Next, students practiced writing a paragraph, focusing on the job of each of the lines of the paragraph. We looked at the purpose of the topic sentence, supporting sentences and closing sentence.
Students also took their spelling pre-test and wrote down their corrections. Students should be practicing their words each night.
