Days 6-8 Typically consist of Writing mini-lessons/Writer's Workshop and Grammar exercises, Writer’s Workshop, and additional reading activities whether differentiated small group instruction with small readers, Scholastic readers, or mini lessons embedded in the Wonders “week/lesson” are utilized for additional strengthening and reinforcing of skills. Homework is often a writing activity or grammar worksheet/workbook assignment (unless it is a Friday – usually no homework on Fridays).

Days 7-9 Typically consist of a “Weekly Assessment” which incorporates the assessment of comprehension utilizing two “cold” read passages (text not read prior to assessment) with associated comprehension questions to assess the ability of the student to transfer the skill knowledge from the selection story to material not read previously.  Every few assessments also include one essay where students must demonstrate understanding by writing a response essay utilizing the RACES writing strategy (R-Restate the Question, A-Answer the Question, C-Cite Evidence, E-Explain/Expand on evidence and thought, S-Sum it all up). Homework is often a writing activity or grammar worksheet/workbook assignment (unless it is a Friday – usually no homework on Fridays).
