This week we are reading a charming sorry about being new and friendship. "Gloria Who Might Be My Best Friend" is actually a short story out of the book The Stories Julian Tells. The Stories Julian Tells is a fantastic story in itself about a boy who tells fantastic tales and ends up in a bit of trouble. Our story, however, is a calmer tale about a new girl who moves into the neighborhood and how she befriends a lonely boy.

This week we will also be exploring the world of realistic fiction more and finishing our realistic fiction stories. Our reading focus for this week will be using story details to better understand characters. this is an important part of reading comprehension and helping students learn to write better.

As usual, we will be having a spelling test on Friday, practicing vocabulary on Monday and grammar on Wednesday. Please help your child review and practice these skills at home this week. The weekly handout is posted below, and you can use this slideshow to practice the vocabulary..
