Students will meet together with Mrs. Baker’s class in my room. I will go over their informative essays on the doc cam with both classes watching. Mrs. Baker will use the remainder of the time to teach test taking skills.

On Tuesday we will take the FSA.

On Wednesday students will read independently half the day. The other half, they will continue to read The Astonishing Journey of  Teddy Bodain.

We work with partners to ask and answer questions.
