5th Grade Reading Street Unit 2
I cannot believe that this is the last week for Unit 1 of our new Reading curriculum! Time has gone so quickly, and I still don't feel prepared on a daily basis. The school year is speeding by, as usual. But ready or not, it's time to get prepared for Unit 2! So here you go, for all who are interested... Selection Titles and Questions and Amazing Words and Selection Vocabulary for Unit 2. You may notice that I added the number of the unit and story at the bottom of each page. I'm hoping that will help me stay organized and save me a few minutes each week when I change my focus wall. I will continue to work on the skills and strategies this week, and hopefully have them up soon. Please share any ideas you have on implementing Reading Street for this novice; any advice would be much appreciated!
On a side note, I want to congratulate our Reading Specialist (and my friend), Mrs. Skoff, for receiving the classroom iPads from our district! I could not be happier for her; it is well-deserved, and I know she will make the most of them while reaching a greater and more varied population of students in our school. Congratulations, Mindy! It couldn't have happened to a better teacher or a nicer person! Yay!
