This week in Journeys, we will begin Unit 1, Lesson 4.  We will read the story "Lucia's Neighborhood". The Phonics focus this week will be the beginning and middle sound of short /e/and consonants y, w, k, v, j. and phonogram -et. Our grammar focus this week will be on adjectives. Comprehension this week is text and graphic features.  This week our writing will focus on learning how to write a narrative story.  We will do this together as a class. We continue to try and understand that all sentences begin with an upper case letter and end with an end mark. We will be practicing all week. We will continue to decode and blend our one syllable words. Our essential question for this week is, "Who can you meet in a neighborhood?"

  We now are in a routine of decoding, blending, writing, and comprehension.
