Other News This Week
This week in writers' workshop students experimented with different ways to begin a piece of writing using examples from our favorite authors. They found better ways to hook a reader's attention. Next week we'll work on keeping their attention with better middles.
Second graders packed their toolbox of fix-up strategies to improve comprehension. They tried out checking for understanding, back up and reread and retelling the story when they didn't understand. Next week your students will add retelling nonfiction and asking questions while reading to their toolbox of strategies.
This week we began developing "I wonder..." questions before we head out on our Community Walking Trip. While we are on our study trip downtown, we hope to learn more about businesses in our community and what we can do to contribute to Noblesville. If your child has not returned their study trip permission slip, please return it on Tuesday.
In general, our class has not been exhibiting their best behavior this week. We had very low scores in specials as well as being loud in the hallway and restrooms. The main areas are being very chatting and not following directions. I know we can turn this around and follow the examples that many students are setting for us.
