Helping students reach their full potential.
What we have completed this semester!
2. Summary writing with fiction and nonfiction (will be revisited).
3. Reading nonfiction.
4. Writing a basic stand alone paragraph. Students were taught a process to better help them organize their ideas.
5. Analyzing poetry/song lyrics.
6 They then wrote a paragraph about who they admire.
What we are working on currently!
1. Currently, we are working on literature circles. The three novels we are reading can be found below.
Along with reading the novels, each person in the literature circle is to complete a daily job. The jobs consist of: Summarizer, Word Finder, Connector, Discussion Director, Illustrator, Predictor, and Character Analyzer. The students change their job daily. At the end of each day, the students spend time debriefing their group on what they have written down.
By using this process, we hope to help our students, your kids, to be able to better relate to and understand what they are reading.
