Writer's Workshop by Tommy, Meredith, and Lily
Reader's Workshop by Courtenay, Callum, Will Cody
In the groups we write questions down. The way we write the question is we have to use cards that have questioning strategies. One of the strategies says, “What you would use to classify ________.” Another example is, “Can you recall ______?” After that the other members in the group answer the questions during our group discussion.
Another thing we do in Reading is we write a summary on each chapter we read. What we have to include in the summary is the most important events in the chapter and what the characters do.
Also in Reading we do Journeys. In Journeys we have been reading small stories and answering a flow chart or a compare and contrast chart. In the beginning we read as a class for the first half and then we can go to the back rug and read in a small group, read with a partner, or read by yourself. We also do a vocabulary game every week. Some of the games include Memory and Taboo.

**BOOK REPORT PROJECT!**
The last thing we have been working on is a special project in reading. We will make a character from a book out of a bottle and Styrofoam ball. We must complete a 1-1.5 page summary about the book. This project is due on April 24th and there is a rubric that we must do our best to complete.
This month has been an action packed in the classroom and we hope you enjoyed hearing about it!
