Reading and Writing
The students have brainstormed topics they know a lot about from their own lives. They have brainstormed topics and drafted rough drafts. The students are selecting topics this week and we will begin to draft chapters of information for our final draft. Our students know a lot about many different topics.
Some text features to notice in reading at home or around town:
- Table of Contents
- Keywords (bold, italics, special colors)
We continue our use of the Bridges materials that the classroom is piloting. There are more homework pieces so hopefully you have a better idea of the things we are doing in the classroom.
The students are currently creating a winter town scene where the windows are arrays. Some students were given arrays and others had to build several different arrays given a certain number of window panes.
A New Way to Record...
Thanks for your patience as we all transition.
