Question of the Day What do you talk about with your friends? My friends and I like to talk about ______________. T244
Today’s Read Aloud Set a purpose – Why would someone want to read or listen to a poem more than once? To enjoy it again; to practice reading aloud. Listen and follow along as I read the poem aloud. Listen for words that rhyme or have similar sounds. Listen as my voice gets lower and higher as I read. Pay attention to punctuation as you read. T157
The Letter I looked in the mailbox. What did I see? A letter was sitting, addressed just to me. I never received a letter before. So I grabbed it and ran inside the front door. I opened it, my head like a drum. I looked at the end. Who was it from? There at the bottom was the name “May” – My very best friend who had just moved away. She liked her new teacher, whose name was Miss Wu, And she said that she missed me – “I want to see you.” I read my first letter again and again, And answered it back, right there and then. Now, repeat after me as we read the poem again.

The letter g usually stands for /g/, but when it is followed by e or i, if often stands for /j/. This is called the soft sound of g. The spelling pattern dge also stands for /j/.

Author’s Purpose T63 The author’s purpose is the reason he or she wrote something. What are the most common purposes for writing? Understanding the author’s purpose can help readers set a purpose for reading and better understand a selection. Tell me what the author’s purpose is for each of these: Why might an author write a letter to the editor supporting someone who is running for mayor? Why might an author write a poem about the sea? Why might an author write a funny story that takes place on a farm? Why might an author write an article about his or her experience in a hot-air balloon?
Context Clues Good readers use context clues to figure out the meanings of unfamiliar words. Other words in the sentence can help you figure out what a word means. Use context clues to determine the meaning of the underlined word in each of these sentences. Tamika clutched the coin and held it tight. The farmer made furrows in the ground and planted seeds in the cut lines. Tom likes to roam the park. “I did NOT do that!” said Grace indignantly.
Fluency When you read aloud, you should read with accuracy. You should also read with appropriate expression and intonation. In plays, paying attention to the characters’ feelings can help you know how to read specific parts. Get in your groups and practice reading “Ask the Experts”. Pay attention so you will know when it is your turn to read.

An object in a sentence receives an action or has something done to it. Object pronouns can take the place of an object. Read these object pronouns with me: Me you him her it us them Object pronouns cannot be used to take the place of the subject. It and you are on both lists. They can be used as the subject or object in a sentence.

Writing – Proofread & Publish You will be publishing your writing in a magazine. After you have finished revising, proofreading, and making a clean copy of your writing, you will act as editors, just like Corey and Taylor, and decide how the magazine will be put together. Be sure to check that you have correctly used subject and object pronouns. After you finish writing, proofread for spelling, capitalization, and punctuation. Make corrections.
Many people will have the opportunity to enjoy the works that the class publishes, so it is important that your handwriting is neat and all errors are corrected. Begin working on the final copy after you have made corrections. Remember to indent each new paragraph. Use your best handwriting!
