This past week we started working in our new Wonders reading curriculum, but we took a break from that on Thursday to connect ELA (English Language Arts) to history. On Thursday we read a biography of Dr. Martin Luther King in honor of him delivering his “I Have a Dream” speech on that very day in 1963. We discussed his BIG dream, his belief in the power of BIG words, and our own BIG dreams. It was a great day of connecting reading to history!
This coming week we will wrap up lesson one and have a test on Thursday. The test will focus on using context clues to determine the meaning of new words and recognizing the sequence of events in a text selection.
