Welcome to Mrs. Candelmo's Classroom
Where Small Group Instruction Happens!
In SGI, students gather in small groups to focus and work on applying reading and writing strategies. Our reading goal is to apply strategies that help us develop a deeper understanding of the text. As we write about what we read, we strive to write well-written knowledgeable responses and essays that demonstrate our comprehension.
I work closely with the homeroom teachers to identify students that may need extra support in the areas of reading and writing. The students and I then work together to target and apply skills that will improve upon our comprehension and writing.
Writing about our reading is ALWAYS a work in process.
Presently, we are working on the following:
Gr 4-5 Reading>Fiction>Writing about Plot/Setting/Characters/Theme
Reading>Non-Fiction>Write to demonstrate understanding
Gr 3 Writing>Informational
Gr 4 Writing>Informational
Gr 5 Writing>Informational> Feature Article
