I'm looking forward to seeing how our children grew this autumn! MAP Testing Round 2 is December 9 and December 11.
We are still looking for about 14 more jars. Please send in one label-free, clean jar with your child this week.
Another Project for Our Veterans
Thankfully Busy and Writing!
Last week we completed Unit of Study 2 with Traditional Literature as the focus and have moved into non-fiction works. Our reading discussions have changed from talking about the characters and conflicts in stories to conversations of topics, main ideas, text features, and facts. Students are noticing the way authors show information and practicing how to understand the information.
After reading, Chameleons are Cool, we created illustrations, labeled them, and paraphrased to write our own expository text!
