Happy Friday dear Room 25 Families,
Math: We concluded our data unit today by studying and analyzing line plots. We also practiced making line plots using last Friday’s hand measurement data.
Reader’s Workshop: We are still focused on practicing strategies that help us gain a deep understanding of the stories we read. A major comprehension strategy is to make predictions by asking ourselves “What will happen next?” Today, we learned that expert readers not only predict what will happen next but especially how things might happen. To do so, readers draw on important specifics from the text (such as character traits and actions, external factors influencing the character, etc.) as well as their knowledge of how stories tend to go.
Conventions Workshop: One focus of this segment is to give our learners a chance to improve their spelling of high-frequency words at their individual levels. Learners underwent a quick spelling assessment which helped us determine which words each individual needs to focus on. Today, we introduced a spelling practice technique called “Trace, Copy, and Recall”. Ask your learner to show you how it’s done!
Wishing you all a relaxing and enjoyable weekend!
