This week in Reading we our continuing our unit on "Using Sensory Images." In this unit, the students will create pictures in their head as they read stories or listen to stories. They will use sensory images to understand the characters, setting and major events in a story. They will use words and illustrations to tell about the setting, characters and major events in a story.
We have begun our PBL unit on weather. The students are developing schema on weather and how it affects where we live and what we wear and the activities we do. We will also be watching several clips on weather reporting. Our end goal for this unit is for students to give a daily recess weather report for the school each day so students are prepared to go outside.
