A look inside...
Daily Writing Journal
Students write in their writing journals for 10-12 minutes with a given prompt everyday. After writing, they share what they wrote with the class. We are practicing our presentation skills (sharing voice and standing tall) along with our listening skills (eyes and ears on the speaker).
Our current unit of study focuses on strategies to use when coming across a hard word in the text. Students are searching for words in their books that have beginning blends. They are becoming familiar with the beginning blends and will be able to use this to help them solve any tricky words they might come across in future books.
We are beginning our Opinion writing unit. Students are asked to state their opinion and to provide reasons in support of those reasons. They are also encouraged to show examples in their writing.
After a couple of minutes of writing students were asked to share their opinions with their group members.
We are investigating ways to collect data.
Students learned about hispanic culture and weaved their own personalized "blankets".
Took a class survey before making our fruit kebabs. Students learned about the importance fruits and vegetables being a part of a healthy diet.
