MB's Multi 1-2 Classroom News
A SPECIAL PROJECT WITH SHANNON!
Daily 5 CAFE
Blend Stretch and Re Read and Infer and Support with Evidence!
We also worked on the comprehension strategy Infer and Support with Evidence. After reading and discussing the book "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!" we used some close reading skills to re read the book, find pages that showed the pigeon, but had no words. Then we inferred what we thought the author was thinking about the characters, the setting, the problem, and wrote what we thought the Pigeon might be thinking, based on the evidence we found and read in the book.
We also read the book ISHI and made our own ISHI and then offered some simple tips to be a successful solid student. This project will be posted on a bulletin board by our lockers. Please come read our simple, spectacular and solid advice! AMAZING!!!!
In writing workshop with MB and Shannon we continue to write in our writer's notebooks. First we all write for a silent 10 minutes. Then we write for a quiet 20. At the end on some days, students get to share their writing. MB finally started some Harper and Izzy stories too.
Word study time is also up and running. 1st graders have been focusing on closed syllables and all of the short vowel sounds. Closed syllables have 1 vowel, the vowel is closed in by at least one consonant, so the vowel sound is short. 2nd graders have been focusing on the many ways the long Aa and long Ee sound can be made. They have also focused on identifying closed syllables, vowel consonant silent e syllables, and D syllables. D stands for dipthongs- two or more vowels making one new sound, and digraphs two or more letters making one new sound.

WE ARE LEARNING TO...
Jasper puts on the light to signal which learning intention we are working on. Next to the learning intention is the success criteria. Sooooo that means... what is it you are expected to do and learn, and what do you need to do to be successful at it.
