In writing students have been studying each other's names. They have been exploring the letters and sounds. Each week we have been working on a different student's name, and this week is all about Emmett! Students have built his name in various ways. The other part of writing this week has been all about Heart Stories - or stories that matter to students from their own lives and experiences. We have been brainstorming and doing story maps to prepare for writing these.
Reading and math have been all about practicing some known skills. Students are reading using a computer program called Lalilo and also reading independently from physical books of their choosing. Plus, students are reading with teachers practicing specific skills such as CVC words or words containing vowel teams. In math students have been reviewing math skills at their individual levels by playing math games and doing activities with teachers.
