Reading Update

Main Selection: Children do have sympathy for other children. José Manuel has to watch the other children play because his grandmother believes it is too dangerous on the street. Three sisters feel sorry and are determined to find a way to change the grandmother's mind. That is the problem, and now I want to know what steps they take to solve it. The author of The Night of San Juan makes readers feel for José and makes them hope the sisters are successful.

This Week's Skills

Comprehension: problem and solution

Vocabulary: suffixes

I would like to hold student/parent/teacher conferences with each student within the next three weeks. I will have time slots afterschool, during planning (1:05) or on conference night. Please let me know which time is best for you and your child and I will let you know when I am available.
