Week 6~ 9-23-16
This weeks photo credits go to Zack!
Reader’s Workshop: We Continue on this journey! . We are learning how to choose books that are interesting to us we are also learning how to record our books on Padlet. As you see these books coming home celebrate the new book, read it together and that's it! For now... we will soon learn how to determine if our is a book we can read alone, one they may need help with, and you will read WITH them, or if it's one you should read to them.
Did you know you can read books without words? Did you know you SHOULD always read the pictures and use the pictures to help you read? Your first grader does! Ask them WHY we read illustrations and HOW we do!
Writers make choices. Where, what, when will I write? What tools do I need and why? Who will read my story? How can I best tell my story? What illustrations will help my reader? It's a lot of work being a write... celebrate and support all my choices!
As mathematicians we will work with others and independently to solve problems. Some of the problems we will explore will have various answers. Our focus is on the process. Mathematicians are; flexible thinkers, they work in efficient ways, they try various strategies, and they push through the hard parts.
Skill focus- Counting and writing numbers up to 120
Social Studies: In Social Studies we are continuing to working on building our community. This week we have discussed what we dream of for our classroom. We are currently illustrating our dream. Soon, we will turn this into a video to share with you and post the papers in our room. I will share more as we finish!
