This Week's Learning
This week your child did a power write on the Iditarod. They created a poster explaining the history, the dogs, what a musher needs, and the dangers of the race. The kids really enjoyed the mini unit and learned quite a bit!
In reader's workshop your child did a reader's theatre on the Iditarod, close read an article about it, and learned about a musher who raced this year. At the beginning of this week, they didn't even know what the Iditarod was and by the end they could explain quite a bit about it.
Two groups of students performed a reader's theatre on the Iditarod.
