This week in review...
Take a look at the pictures below to see what we have been up to recently!
|Using virtual manipulatives to solve math problems.|
|Each writer is working on developing their own story adding additional thoughts, |
dialogue, and even a flash forward.
|Finding evidence in the text to prove that the character is caring...|
... or determined. Students then take turns sharing their strongest evidence with one another.
Special Assembly: The NED Show! October 19, 2016
|NED and Meghan came to visit our school on Wednesday and shared positive, encouraging messages about how we can meet the goals we set for ourselves in and out of school. They also reminded us how we can help others to do the same!|
|The NED Show performer, "Meghan" got quite a response from the students when she asked, "Who wants to be a champion?"|
|Meghan also interviewed a few students to ask them what it takes to be a champion. One response included, "Courage."|
|The teachers were all smiles as they got into the action as well!|
|Students in 4K are caught up in the suspense of Tiger Rising!|
|Mrs. Kelley and Ms. Sharick share the goals for today's reading lesson.|
|Students eagerly take a post-it note and a pencil to "stop and jot" as they infer WHY |
the characters are acting the way they do in the book.
|5B students are rereading their work to see what else they may add to "show" the reader rather|
than "telling" the reader what was happening and what their characters are thinking.
|Students use post-its to write down thoughts and dialogue they want to add and place them where|
they want to insert them in their narrative.
