Kindergarten started a new reading unit- Avid Readers. Students are finding different ways and strategies to make reading fun. This week we explored reading play dates. We learned we can play school and students can either be the teacher and read a book to everyone or students can participate in a shared reading, in which we all read the same book together.
The first graders started a new writing unit- chapter books. Students are exploring nonfiction books and discussing all they things they know and wants to share in a book. Students are writing books about dogs, plants and sea creatures. First grade is also working together and having fun with exploring the strategy of shared reading.
