I created this unit last year for 4th Grade Reading Wonders. Here is the Newsletter I give to my students so they know what we will be covering during the week. This Newsletter is a living and active document in which we review concepts on a daily basis. I usually provide it at the beginning of the week and we highlight and circle key words as we read it. It serves as a review for students as well as a guide for parents so they know what concepts, and skills the students are learning in class.
This set includes a newsletter for each lesson in Unit 1.
