Happy Valentines Day!!!!
Thanks for all the donations you are sending in for Pasta for Pennies! The students are so excited about helping out the cause! The box top competition will be going through the month of March. Please continue sending in your box tops!
This week we have been talking about keeping track of our thinking by taking notes! Students have practiced drawing pictures, writing words and summaries on sticky notes, and sharing favorite parts. They know that readers do this to help them remember what they’ve read. In nonfiction, we know to pull out important facts from the text. When reading it a big concept to think about what is most important and what details they should include. We took notes on a web (graphic organizer) to help us organize our thinking! We will continue to learn how graphic organizers can help us to organize information so that they can be expert researchers for a project coming up in the next couple of weeks! J
