Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 11.1 Phonics of the Week: long i; _i_e
  • Your student will be writing the middle paragraph to his/her story in this lesson. Have your student add this next paragraph to the one written last week. S/he will be using the planning s/he did in previous weeks with pictures and captions. This is a "sloppy copy," or a rough draft. So your student does not need to worry about spelling or using his/her best handwriting. It is just a time to get his/her ideas down on paper into sentences. Also, be sure to spread out the writing of this middle paragraph throughout the week. The lesson models an entire paragraph, but it is not recommended that your student write an entire paragraph in one day.
  • As your student reads "Mike's Kite," ask them the following questions: What does Mike want to do? What does Mike's mom say he has to do first? What does Mike find in his piles that are in his room? Draw a picture of your favorite part of the story and write a sentence about your picture using your sight words.
