The Phonics focus this week will be reviewing the short /i/ sound, blends wirh /r/, and phonogram -ip. The comprehension skill this week is review of Main Idea and Details. Our Essential Question is: "How do animals communicate?". As part of our comprehension practice, students will learn to infer and predict what is happening and what will happen next. 
 In grammar this week, we will learn how to use a comma in a series.  We have been doing a great job writing our sentences. We will make lists of our favorite things in order to practice placement of commas. We will also learn how to use the Glossary this week.  They will be tested on this at the end of the week.
