Students have been sharing their reading interests with their teachers. We have begun to help them in selecting books we think they will enjoy during Read to Self time. They have also been practicing their reading stamina when reading to themselves. It begins by picking a good fit book and finding a nice spot to read away from distractions.
We have also begun to use Lexia again as a skills builder.
Weeks 1 and 2 of Wonders: The focus is on Narrative Non-Fiction. Students have read 3 stories in this Genre. Students have worked on compound words, and text features (headings, maps) . Throughout this first unit, students are asked to analyze character traits (proud, mean, scared) and provide text evidence to show when their character showed that trait. We also have been looking at how characters change from the beginning to the end of the story.
