    Hi guys, I am posting the final assignments for this week through the 18th on ReadWorks.  I will continue adding assignments weekly during the summer so that you can parctice your skills, but they will NOT be mandatory.  I will also be posting some information about other summer resources and offerings on the ENL Blog in the next two weeks.  Please continue doing your best to complete assingments on time--I will check them on Fridays as usual.

    NYSESLAT

    Even though we will not be taking the NYSESLAT this year, it's important that we practice and evaluate our skills so we know what we will need to focus on when we return to school.  

    The following packet has a sampling of questions from past exams that exercise your reading, writing, listening and speaking skills.  Your adult should use the directions to help you complete the speaking and listening parts, and you can respond to the reading and writing questions on your own.  You can find the packet here: 3rd Grade NYSESLAT Packet

    Good luck, and please e-mail me pictures of your work (by printing this packet and completing it, or by answering on a separte sheet of paper) by Friday, April 24th.

    Project Read

    This week, I would like you to select one of the 3rd grade books from my E-book Library to read with your grownup.  Each day, you will use this book to complete one assignment.

    Monday:  Please use this Re-Telling the Story Sheet to show what you know about the story:  What happened first?  What happened next?  What happened last?  

    Tuesday:  Watch the following videos on our sight words this week.  Then use these Sight Words Practice Sheets to improve your listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.

    Wednesday:  When you have completed the story sheet, I would like you to use the book to create an illustration of your favorite moment in the story.  Use some of this week's sight words to describe this moment in one or two sentences.

    Thursday: Use this video to help you create puppets of the main characters of your chosen story using materials found around your house.  Act out the beginning, middle and end of the story with your grownup or a brother or sister.

    Friday:  *Optional video assignment:  Dress up as a character from your book.  You can use a paper mask, toys, clothes, the puppets you've made or just pretend using your voice and body.  Have your grownup make a video of you acting out your favorite scene from the book.  

    ***If you choose not to do the video assignment, please complete this Book Report instead.

    Each day, please take a picture of your completed work and e-mail it to me so that I know you're developing your language and practicing your skills!  I will reply with feedback, and I will post the best work in my Picture Gallery.
