1. Essential Question(s) for Unit
- Can I apply my knowledge of language and its conventions when writing, speaking and/or listening?
- Can I choose language that expresses ideas precisely and concisely, eliminating wordiness and redundancy?
- Can I correctly use frequently confused words (e.g. to/too/two, there/their/they're)?
- Can I apply previously learned knowledge to improve my reading fluency an comprehension?
2. Daily Objective(s)/Learning Target(s)
- I can segment sounds in words and syllables into words and discriminate short and long vowel sounds.
- I can apply specific "spelling rules" ("Double It", "Drop-e") to spell words with the "silent-e" pattern correctly.
- I can create my own definitions of words using categories and attriubutes.
- I can identify nouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, and appropriate verb tense.
- I can define vocabulary using context-based strategies.
- I can generate sentences using a six-stage process and use signal words to answer comprehension questions.
