Language Workshop

We finished up our Investigation unit and learned many things about different ways to investigate to find out more about our world. Students have been practicing investigation skills such as observing the weather and the changes in Spring. Our last unit is Reflection in which we have been reflecting on our growth this year and how it relates to the two books about being readers in our world.
