Reading Workshop

  • We started a new unit in reading which focuses on getting to know characters.  We are learning how to put ourselves in the characters’ shoes to imagine what they are thinking, and what they should say. Students will spend time performing their favorite books by role-playing with a partner to make the character think and talk.

Writing Workshop

  • In writing, we started our unit on “All About” books. Students are learning to think of a topic they know a lot about, collect and/or organize their facts, plan their books, and then to begin writing.
  • Goals for students include: staying on topic, using illustrations and diagraphs, as well as, words to teach, stretching out their writing, and keeping their writing organized.

Math

  • We’ve started our measurement unit. A letter was sent home that lists fun unit-related activities to try at home!
