Our first child of the day to read to the class and lead us through the classroom promise and calendar was Brianna. She did a fantastic job and then helped Alexia when she had questions the following day! Take a moment to enjoy listening to their reading!
Look for an update to the blog this weekend where you will get a chance to hear students reading!
We ended the year with a Mystery Reader/Storyteller: John's mother! Then we began the year with a review of PBIS procedures with Mrs. Rios' class and Mr. Ricardez class. In readers, writers, and math workshop, we reviewed what each looked and sounded like. We did a quick refresh of where we left off before break and now we are all back to learning.
In readers workshop we are learning about the strategy of inferring. We read Corduroy this week and looked at how the clues in the text plus our schema help us to infer what is happened.
In writers workshop we reviewed our anchor charts on leads and continued learning ways to end our stories using mentor text.
In math workshop we finished up our unfinished independent work from December as well as worked on math facts.
