Soccer, hockey, gymnastics and dance recitals have taken over my life and left my little blog a bit neglected. So I'm sharing a throwback post today. We're working on summarizing informational text in room 206 in preparation for writing informational reports. We are busy reading, determining main ideas, text structures, author's purpose. None of this work is easy for my fifth graders, but they are persevering and I can't wait to see their finished work. If you're interested in how we're approaching these tough skills, check out my post from last year - HERE.
