Current writing  assignments are focusing proper sentence structure and proper paragraph formation with Topic sentence, Detail sentences, and conclusion sentences.  We also continue to learn specific spelling strategies with long and short vowels sounds.  R controlled vowels, silent consonants such as the K in know and the W in writing.  Students are learning to use "tools" for great writing such as their spelling dictionary, word wall, spelling card wall, etc.

Reading and Writing are excellent cross curricular subjects.  The high expectations of reading and writing are expected in other content areas as well.
