Hello! I am finally up and running on my blog. We are now 3 weeks into the school year. We have been working hard building our reading stamina and exercising our writing muscles. You can see students below working hard on their writing. We are working on small moment stories, using our mentor text “Owl Moon” by Jane Yolen. We are studying the moves author Jane Yolen makes in her writing to bring her characters to life in our writing. We are also thinking about our reading as writers, noticing the moves authors make to get a reaction out of the reader. All of this after 14 days! Wow!
We have been focusing on plants in science. Today, we “planted” lima beans in a plastic bag with a wet paper towel. We will make observations over the next week of how our beans, hopefully, grow. Perhaps a picture next week will feature our successful lima bean plants!
