Reading and Writing

Theme 1 Week 2, Good Students
  • Vocabulary words: responsibility, cooperate, behavior
  • Comprehension strategy making connections

In reading, we have been working on building our read to self, word work, and writing stamina. We made it to 14 minutes and our goal is 15, getting closer. :) On Friday, we took our first reading test and had fun reading in the dark with our flashlights. In writing, we have been talking about how our sentences need to start with a capital, end with a punctuation mark and have spaces between words.

Mr. Kuklok came in to read to our class. He read us the stories Rosie Revere, Engineer and Ada Twist, Scientist. After reading both stories we created circle maps about an engineer and a scientist. The students did a fantastic job. I know we are going to be great engineers and scientists this year. :)
