Thursday 9-14

Today, students read their second close reading in their workbooks. This text was called “Voting Rights Act Address” by President Lyndon Johnson. Students found key details to support the main idea in the address.

Students also reviewed and learned about short vowel sounds.

Students also began their rough draft for their formal letter, which asks them to imagine that they were at the constitutional convention and writing home to a loved one. Tomorrow they will begin their final draft. This may be homework over the weekend.

*Students will have a brief assessment tomorrow on the skills that they have practiced this week. It will be eight questions and multiple choice.

Thanks for checking in, have a nice evening.
