7 MORE DAYS! Virtual Book Fair

The UELF Virtual Book Fair is OPEN. Visit the link and shop away!

While shopping for books, be sure to have students record reading minutes in the reading log. The students are challenged to read 70,000 minutes as a school and if they do, Mrs. Lunde will dye her hair BLUE!

Mrs. Lunde reads every day for lots of different reasons....what and when you do read?

Big picture

HOW is your student TAKING CHARGE of LEARNING?

Learning is an ACTIVE experience. Take a moment to read the questions above....These questions are intended to facilitate students to noodle or simmer on what they are doing rather than just doing it. Work with your child, during distance learning, hybrid learning, and regular school learning to articulate what he is trying to understand. Press your child to expand and/or elaborate on her ideas of what she is doing. If your child is exploring a math concept, focus on the student talking through the math thinking,, use the recording feature on SeeSaw to capture this thinking. If your child is reading, then ask questions to connect the reading to real life. Support contextualizing the skills being learned.
