It was an eventful week in class 1-014, as the students received their first classroom jobs and earned their word detective badges. Each child is now responsible for different tasks thought-out the day, giving them a sense of personal responsibility and ownership of their classroom. The children were very excited to receive their jobs and have taken great pride in performing their duties.
The children received their Official Word Detective badges during our Reader’s Workshop time. The children earned their badges by working hard to find and read difficult words, snap words, and trick words. They also learned how to be good reading partners by helping and encouraging their peers when they are reading. The children have been incredibly supportive of each other and had a great time learning to become Word Detectives!
