This week we worked on sharing questions that we have while reading. We know that good readers generate questions before, during, and after reading books. We practiced this during our reading groups and with several great read alouds including: The Brand New Kid and I’m Not Scared, You’re Scared!
We have been busy learning all about how to improve our personal narratives. We have gone through the editing and revising process with our first narrative. We used our editing skills to check for correct spelling and mechanics. We also learned about adjectives and adverbs.
Graphing was our main focus this week. We learned all about reading and interpreting bar graphs and picture graphs.
This week we have been learning about how scientists use different tools along with scientific thinking. We inquired, made observations, documented our thinking in our science journals, and we made discoveries. Ask your child about "digging up dinosaur bones" to find out more.
