Reader's Workshop

  • Word Study: Prefixes
  • No new Journeys story: Next week we will be choosing our favorite story to re-read from Book One.
  • Traditional Literature Unit: We've been exploring traditional literature, reading fairytales, folktales, legends, myths, porquois, and tall tales! We visited Mrs. Patterson to have her share her favorite stories with us too!

Currently reading: The World According to Humphrey (one of Mrs. Wagler's favorite series!)

Writer's Workshop

We finished up our poetry learning with free verse, haikus, couplets and cinquains. We practiced oral story telling to connect to our reading unit.
