Unit 3 weeks 1-5 Family Notices of Week's Objectives; This is a collection of family notices that clearly state the reading & writing objectives for unit 3 weeks 1 - 5 objectives. I give the students this sheet on Day 1 of the Wonders week. Listed at the top is the unit and week and a line for the student to put his/her name. Beneath that is the essential question. The week's vocabulary is listed, as well as, the spelling skill and words including the review & challenge words. Listed are the titles of the Shared, Anchor, Paired reads, the Unit skills including genre, comprehension strategy, skill, vocabulary skill, grammar, writing traits and writing skill. There is a box to write the date of the grammar/spelling/vocabulary test and for the reading test portion. A line marked with an X is provided for a guardian's signature. This communicates the expectations for the Wonders week with them. An extra credit point is earned on any test if the signature (not initials) is written. This can add up to +5 for the unit if all 5 weeks have a guardian's signature. The kids seem to appreciate this...and so do the parents. My Wonders week is 6 days. I give this to them on day 1 and collect on day 5 (which is the day I test grammar,spelling, & vocab.) The reading portion of the test is given on day 6.
