Unit Testing this week!
We will spend a lot of time this week going through sample passages and how to annotate to show our thinking. When students are faced with unfamiliar text it’s important that they know how to slow down and connect with the passage. Tuesday night’s homework will be a practice of this.
The skills assessed in Unit 1 are: sequence, words in context, main idea, setting, inference, and theme. The spelling portion of the unit test will be multiple choice. There will be a sentence using the word and the students will identify if it’s spelled correctly or they will select the correct spelling. UNIT SPELLING CAN BE FOUND ON VOCABULARY A-Z!
The unit test is long so we will break it into two parts, taking the test on Thursday and Friday.
The grammar component of the unit test will cover the types of sentences (declarative, interrogative, imperative, and exclamatory) and nouns (identifying proper and common nouns)
