Poem In Your Pocket Day
McDougle is celebrating national Poem in Your Pocket Day again this year!
Help your child find a poem for his or her pocket on Thursday, April 30th. Bring your favorite poem to school that day, write your own, or pick one up on the way to class.
As always, we'll have great fun sharing our poems all day long!
Students are paying attention to punctuation, and using that to read with expression. Students are also picking up on clues from the text that informs meaning, as well as drawing on experiences to develop a deeper meaning with the text. We are continuing to work on rereading for meaning, especially when something "big" happens in the the text. This is a fun unit and we hope that students are showing off their acting skills at home too! ---
