We will be working from the McGraw-Hill Wonders program in reading which focuses on students ability to go back through a text and find "evidence" to answer questions and respond to writing prompts. Students will have 8 vocabulary words to study each week and will have a weekly vocabulary test. Students will also have a weekly Spelling test and Grammar quiz.
