It is basically two projects.Welcome!We are delighted to welcome Marley Eggers to our classroom. The students welcomed Marley on Friday with an Open Circle in our classroom, led by Mr. Lee. We are happy to have a new friend and classmate.WritingWe wrapped up our Personal Narrative Unit by sharing our Small Moment Stories with a Clock Buddy. Each buddy listened to their partner's story and "gave them a hand", by writing them a compliment on something they did well. These students are very appreciative of a good author's craft; I read lots of compliments about writing good similes or strong verbs or onomonopeia. I am so proud of these fabulous authors!Our next writing unit is composing opinion letters about a character in a book.
Have a great week!
