Teacher:

Welcome to Quarter 3!
During Quarter 3, we will introduce our paragraph of the week. Students will be given a topic or question to respond to on Monday, and will have the duration of the week to write their draft, edit/revise, and publish by Friday. Below you will find the rubric for these paragraphs. All paragraphs should include: topic sentence, at least 3 supporting details, and a conclusion sentence. We are also paying attention to make sure all sentence included correct capitalization and punctuation.

Once your child has shown mastery of generating one paragraph, we will begin to assist them in generating two paragraphs!

Writing 
I can generate multiple paragraphs containing a topic sentence, at least 3 supporting details, and a conclusion sentence.
W2.2 Write informative/explanatory texts in which they introduce a topic, use facts and definitions to develop points, and provide a concluding statement or section.

This week we are writing our second opinion paragraph!

We will focus on literature texts during our read alouds and guided reading for the beginning of Q3.. Students will continue to practice retelling what happened in the story, but we are looking to advance their retell to feel more of a summary. This will help students identify the main components of the story as well as record their summary in a paragraph form.
