Week at a glance ~ 2/18/13 to 2/22/13

Posted on February 19, 2013. Filed under: IRLA Class | Tags: , |

There is no school on Monday,  2/18.

READING work this week will be on nonfiction.

As we read, we will look for and record text structure (like lists and descriptions, cause and effect, problem and solution, sequencing, and compare/contrast) in our books.  Then, we will start looking at text features that help us understand information in our nonfiction books (like maps, images, captions, graphs, and so on).

These concepts of structures and features will help us better understand author’s purpose or point of view, will help us determine the main or central ideas when we read, and will help us to write objective summaries.  This work combined will make up your Nonfiction Reading Response #1 – due on Monday, 2/25.

You must bring your nonfiction books to class each day.  If you finish a nonfiction book, you must have another one ready to go.  Ask for library passes for lunch or flex if you need them.


  • NFRR1 – due on 2/25
  • WW10 – due on 2/27
  • Flex this week will be:
  • Tuesday – period 4
  • Wednesday – period 3
  • Thursday – period 5
  • Friday – period 8
