WEEK A

READING:

This week in reading we will be reading the non-fictional story Me…Jane by Patrick McDonnell. We will use this story to begin our discussion on biographies, or stories about peoples’ lives. Through this story we focus on a story’s structure.

We will also be learning about comparative adjectives. We know that adjectives are describing words. We use comparative adjectives to compare between two things. We use the suffix -er to compare these things. Check out a couple examples used in sentences below.
