Today we had our first whole group reading lesson and read a story called “Thank you Mr. Falker” by Patricia Polacco. We practiced making predictions using evidence from the pictures and text. Students read independently while Mrs. Gallant held reading conferences. We finished our balanced literacy block with a lesson on the writing trait of voice and how to use commas when writing a list or series. We played ‘statue’ dodgeball and assessed our fitness at various stations for Phys. Ed. At the end of the day we organized our desks and continued reading Theme One Fully Alive.
