*Novel Packets due Thursday, October 5
This week in Reading we will focus on main idea and details. The main idea is the most important idea about the topic. Details help support and explain the main idea.
Students have notes in their Literacy Binder in the Helpful Hints and Things to Remember section. There are also games, powerpoints, etc. located in Google Classroom as other forms of resources to study!
Students will not take a reading skills test this week. However, they will take the Wonder novel test.
*Novel vocab is in your child's Literacy Binder, on the powerpoint further down on this webpage, and in Google Classroom!
This week we will hear from Auggie one last time in Part 8. We will see how much his character has changed and grown throughout the novel. We will reflect back on the entire novel and all the characters that we met along the way. We will focus primarily on how each character was different, but each one brought an important part to Auggie's story.
We will take the novel test on Thursday. Students have a study guide to prepare.
*Movie Day on Friday!
Ask your child about what we are learning in class!
This week in Grammar we will focus on Singular and Plural Possessive Nouns.
Singular Possessive Nouns: show that one person, place, or thing has or owns something
Plural Possessive Nouns: show that more than one person, place, or thing has or owns something
*Homework will go home on Monday. This sheet is due Tuesday.

My name is Shawna Short. I am happily married to my high school sweetheart Matt Short, who is a PE teacher at Prattville Elementary School and football coach at Prattville Junior High School. We have three wonderful children, Reece (14), Marley Kate (13), and Sarah Collins (7) who keep us VERY busy!
I absolutely love teaching! There is no greater feeling than watching a child grow and learn! We are going to have a fabulous year!
A few of my favorite things include: Chick-Fil-A, Fountain City Nutrition, and getting my nails done! :)
