We did my favorite lesson about three types of readers....pretender, dutiful, or engaged. You can read more about it here, here, and here. The kids LOVE and ask to "practice" again. I tell them they get to "practice" everyday!
We started some math workshop this week. We have "math around the room." It is ridiculous how much kids love this!
We practiced making and then drawing our mental images.
We have been looking at authors who can help us be better writers. Obviously we need and anchor chart to keep track of all the great ideas we can refer to.
We read one of my all time favorite books, Martina the Beautiful Cockroach. It's a folktale about a cockroach who has suitors and she has to choose the right one. Such a fun read!
