Main Idea with The Snowy Day

This week during ELA we are focusing on the main idea of our read alouds. I will be using two read alouds this week to drive home the understanding of main idea. We will first read our Reading Street story Hide, Clyde all week. Although I really wanted to read The Lion and The Mouse all week, but Clyde is such a fun character with a problem! So we are able to review two skills. I will definitely be utilizing The Lion and the Mouse at the end of the year because I also do a reader's theater with my students for this story.

The main idea in Hide, Clyde is that sometimes we may need to learn how to do something new.

I will also read The Snowy Day, a personal favorite. Friday is the day where I use a new read aloud to review and apply the skill that we are practicing during the week. 

Check out this cute freebie from Smitten with First.

I used this story to assess my students this week. Grab my freebie here.

Throughout the week I focus Monday through Thursday on our story of the week. While we are spending 4 days on the story during my literacy block, we are read only reading it in its entirety about two times. The remainder of the time we are analyzing the story.

I can not believe that next week we take our Unit 3 assessment in reading. That means we are half way through the year. EK!!
