Theme is the message or life lesson that we learn from reading (or watching) a story. We have been reading various short stories to help us develop and improve skills in identifying and analyzing theme. We have also watched a few videos and analyzed the theme of the videos as well.
Here are two of our favorites:
Never, Ever Give Up – Arthur’s Transformation
“Jump” – Steve Harvey speech
Introducing another opportunity to learn and review academic vocabulary related to English Language Arts…
Academic Vocabulary (Plus)
I just added new vocabulary flashcards on Quizlet! We will begin the unit on Informational Text this week (hopefully tomorrow). I hope you will use our resources to review new vocabulary, at https://quizlet.com/_2p7jnv
I am happy to announce a new online resource that will help scholars with learning and reviewing academic vocabulary and spelling.
Please use this great resource to help with studying/reviewing our spelling words. VocabularySpellingCity makes learning our word lists fun and easy.
Scholars will use the same list for two weeks, and then begin working with a new list. This is a part of our efforts in intervention classes, to assist scholars with success in spelling as well as grade level skills and vocabulary. Though spelling is primarily a focus in intervention class, all scholars can benefit from this type of spelling practice at home. However, only scholars who are enrolled in my intervention classes will have a spelling test every other week.
Please let me know if you have any questions about VocabularySpellingCity, intervention class, or any other class-related questions.
