Our focus in 4C this week was setting up an environment that is effective for learning.
In Literacy we set the stage for our reading program. We identified the types of thinking good readers do as we read and wrote reading response letters in which students described their thinking.
In writing we are getting ready to write memoirs. This week we drew maps of our neighborhood and identified what stories we would be able to tell from our own life.
In UOI we are focusing on the Central Idea: “Identity is Expressed in many ways” Students are working to describe their own identity in various ways.
This week we also began buddy time. Our class is buddies with K2C. Throughout the year we will be working with our buddies every other week. We will be reading together as well as sharing our learning with each other.
Next week students will be participating in the NWEA Maps Assessment This will take place next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
