This week in Reader's Workshop, we introduced the importance of looking closely at the pictures in a book and thinking about what will happen on the page. Pictures are very important for early readers and will aid with comprehension as well as decoding print.
In Writer's Workshop, we learned that "When we are done, we have just begun". Writers go
back and add to their words and pictures.
In Science, we continue to study our schoolyard trees. This week we focused on the shapes of trees and the similarities and differences between trees.
