Drama, Drama, Drama
This week Charleston Stage Company came in teach us how to give speeches, complete quick repetitive movements that got everyone excited, and act out amazing scenarios. They discussed things like social/environment activism, global warming, and how to be a good citizen. Our classroom turned into a stage and the students learned acting skills that can be used in so many different aspects of their lives.
Groups of Nouns!
Grammar this week has been filled with nouns galore! Plural nouns, singular nouns, collective nouns, and much more! Students had fun trying to figure out the collective noun that pulls a group of people, places, or things together. For example: A swarm of bees, or a library of books. We have been using Scholastic News and our mentor texts to find these examples to support our learning in class.
Let’s Have a Debate
Reading this week was jam packed with strategies to use during Book Club meetings. We learned how to pick a topic and hold a debate with a pro and con side. We debated about a riveting concept in our Read Aloud book and we all decided if we were going to be “for” or “against” the topic of discussion. I was amazed by how engrossed the students were during our debate. Talk to your child about debatable topics and hold your own!
