Mrs. Wilson's Language Class
6th Grade & 7th grade
Wednesday we took a moment to look at the on demand writing pieces from the beginning of the year and compare them to the student's final narrative paper. The students filled out a reflection about their progress.
Thursday students wrote their end of the unit on demand writing piece. This is a good way to see what techniques have stuck with them from the unit.
Friday sixth graders looked at how we infer in reading and our learning on a daily basis. This was a mini lesson that I felt we needed. Some students were trying to use the inferring symbol on their annotated text but they were not using it correctly. Seventh graders worked on polishing their narrative papers. As I started to look at them, I decided we needed a little more work on a few areas as a class before I graded them.
Annotated text article for the week was title, "Game Over."Ask your child to share with you what it was about.
Narratives in 6th Grade
I showed the students the picture to the right. They understood that they baby in the picture was probably going to be a big brother. I added the information that the "baby" was my son Leo. They then put together that Leo is going to be a big brother.
I heard surprise, confusion, and a few people say, "I knew it". All in all there was excitement in the room.
This is a great group of students and I am disappointed that I will miss the end of the year with them, but excited for this new adventure that my family will be going on.
I will get you more information as I know it. Right now all I know is that I will be gone from (about) April 15 until the end of the year.
