Another week comes to an end. I can't believe how close it is getting to the end of they year. We worked on fiction stories in writers workshop-learning about transition words, repeating lines, and more. We also learned about how to determine importance in our fiction reading. We will continue working on this next week. We took our reading map test today...phew...all done with those! Here are some pictures of our students of the day:
Emily returned from her trip to Poland and shared her journal and some stories. Sounds like she had a lot of fun!
We enjoyed listening to our HOT READ last week, but Isabella was the 1st to read it on her on. She gets a special label inside the book that says: "Isabella was the 1st to read this on April 14, 2012"! Another member of our "First Read Club!" Congratulations!
And, in Mrs. Perrone's room, Alyssa was today's MYSTERY READER!!!! The kids MUST have loved it as we could hear them laughing at the antics of the characters in the book in OUR room! I hope your sister was surprised!
