Partnering Up

Patterns Everywhere!

Our scholars kicked off the week with a continuation of strategies for remembering and counting coin value.  The confidence in skip counting is growing as they utilize the recognizable patterns we see in everyday life.  Curiosity abounds as we notice these patterns everywhere we look in our classroom.

Reading for Comprehension

Reading Workshop this week involved our scholars assessing their own reading comprehension after reading aloud to our class. So often, avid readers of all ages fly through the pages of a great book. What our readers are finding is that it is easy to read quickly without soaking in the details of the content. Through partnering together, we are able to work at a steady pace and help each other summarize the content.  The encouragement levels have grown in only one week and students cannot wait to share with us what they are reading outside of school.


Mastering Capitalization

Capitalization of names has been the name of the game this week for our scholars. Partners gathered together to create sentences where they determined words that should be capitalized.  They worked on making frog leaps with capital letters!
