Fabulous First Graders
Off and rolling!
Reading & Language Workshop
We also started our Language Workshop. In Language Workshop we discuss texts as a class. We discuss the language used by the author, illustrations, lesson of the text, etc. We are learning to use "Talk Moves" during our class discussions to agree or disagree with one another. Our first unit is based around the essential question "What is the value of community?" Below you can see some of the texts we are discussing the first few weeks.
Twice a month we will be participating in school wide coding activity. Below you will find information about this program.
Above is the website for Raz Kids for you to use at home. Raz Kids is a great tool for daily reading minutes. As kids grow as readers the texts get harder and require you to complete quizzes to check on comprehension skills too. Below are log-ins for each homeroom. Let us know if you have any questions.
