R-Influenced Vowel Patterns

R-Influenced Vowel Patterns

Embark on a word hunt in a magazine or book. Have a child search for words that end in ir, ire, and ier, and write them down. These spelling patterns have R-influenced vowels—which can often be hard to remember or even pronounce—but this activity can help children get comfortable with them.
Identifying and pronouncing words with R-controlled vowel patterns can be tricky. Have students say and spell a list of words with R-influenced vowels to help them recall these spelling patterns.

Rounding

Rounding

Go over place values and what it means when a digit is in the ones, tens, or hundreds place. Helping a child feel confident with place values provides the foundation for other math skills, such as rounding numbers.
Students who are confident in their place values skills will find it easier to grasp the concept of rounding. For example, when rounding 1,459 to the nearest hundred, students should understand that the 4 in the hundreds place changes to 5 because the value of the tens digit is greater than or equal to 50.

Responding to Literature

Responding to Literature

Encourage young readers to keep a reading log notebook where they can record important information, such as the title and author of a book, total minutes read, and personal reflections.
Familiarizing students with a reading log is an important step at the beginning of the year. A log can get students to ask questions as they read, reflect on their reading habits, and track their reading progress.

Nonfiction

Reading Connections

Young writers can help their stories feel more realistic by reading nonfiction texts and thinking about what they've learned. For example, have them read a short text about a person they find interesting and ask them about that person's personality traits.
Challenge students to make connections between an assigned nonfiction text and their own piece of realistic fiction writing. Being able to recognize parallels between real people from the reading and their own fictional characters will help them create realistic characters.
