Transcript: Cuba and Europe Fidel Castro He overthrew Batista, Cuba's former ruler, and created a communist government. Because Cuba took aid from the Soviet Union, they allowed the Soviets to build nuclear missiles on their coast (90 miles from the United States). The U.S put an embargo on Cuba because they didn't want a communist country 90 miles from the coast. Cuba has a population of 10 million. As you all know, Christopher Columbus was the first European to discover America. The reason Spain paid for the trip was because they wanted to spread Christianity, gain territory, and discover gold. The two main types of goverment in Europe are Federal Republic and Constitutional Monarchy. The United Kingdom has a Constitutional Monarchy, and the people have a voice in the government. The people vote for Parliament, which is the body that creates the laws for the country, and Parliament chooses the Prime Minister. That's it! Thanks for watching.
Transcript: Writing an opinion about a book he or she has read, using important details from the materials to support that opinion Diagraphs Building words by phonemes Questions? Why should I read with my child at home? Writing stories that include a short sequence of events and include a clear beginning, middle, and end Determining the lesson or moral of stories, fables, and folktales Blends The Path to Being a Successful Reader Paying close attention to details, including illustrations and graphics, in stories and books to answer who, what, where, when, why, and how questions Participating in shared research projects (e.g., read books on a single topic to produce a report) Using text features (e.g., captions, bold print, indexes) to locate key facts or information efficiently Common Core Literacy Some questions to ponder: Which student would you expect to read better? Which students would you expect to know more? Which student would you expect to write better? Which student would you expect to have a better vocabulary? Which student would you expect to be more successful in school and in life? ELA Common Core Thank you for coming! Producing, expanding, and rearranging sentences (e.g., “The boy watched the movie”; “The little boy watched the movie”; “The action movie was watched by the little boy”) What is a phoneme? Exploring with Letterland boards... Taking part in conversations by linking his or her comments to the remarks of others and asking and answering questions to gather additional information or deepen understanding of the topic Student A reads 20 minutes a night, 5 times per week; Student B reads only 4 minutes a night or not at all! Step 1: Multiply minutes a night by 5 times every week. Student A reads 20 minutes x 5=100 minutes per week. Student B reads 4 minutes x 5=20 minutes per week. Step 2: Multiply minutes a week by 4 times every month. Student A reads 100 minutes x 4=400 minutes per month. Student B reads 20 minutes x 4=80 minutes per month. Step 3: Multiply minutes a month by 9 months (a school year). Student A reads 3,600 minutes in a school year. Student B reads 720 minutes in a school year. By the end of 6th grade, if both students continue these same reading habits: Student A will read for a total of 60 school days. Student B will read for a total of 12 school days. One would expect the gap of information retained will have widened considerably and so, undoubtedly, will school performance. How do you think student B will feel about himself/herself as a student?
