Reader's Workshop

This week I have spent a lot of time working individually with children. I have been assessing them on what I have taught third quarter. Checking your child's reading level and how many high frequency words he/she can recall are just some of the things I have been assessing.

Writer's Workshop

Our focus today was on "endings" to our nonfiction stories. I also call them "wrap ups". The children did some sharing of their introductions and endings to their stories. The children then gave suggestions on how to make these two elements even better.

Math

Today we took a "place value" assessment.
