Our Day Today!
We have been working hard to finish up the writing process! Yesterday we chose our favorite animal and made a tree map to list the reasons why we like that animal the best. Today we took our tree maps and put them into "Stop Light Writing" and added a little more to our reasons! These kids are becoming excellent writers already!!
We are still talking about why author's choose to write. We had a really fun "Book Club" yesterday, where we worked with a partner to read a book and enjoyed popcorn! Today we reviewed Author's Purpose by working with a group to sort different cards into persuade, inform, or entertain.
Today we had a little formative assessment to see what we have learned about classifying animals so far!
We are still talking about graphing and learned how to make picture graphs. We had a blast going around the classroom and interviewing each other to create graphs!
