Dear families,

Lots of finishing up the past 2 weeks!

Readers workshop
We had a celebration with 1G where we talked about all the tools we use when we get stuck. They have been working on stopping to solve new words, and building up their comprehension skills. When they are reading at home feel free to do a quick “stop and make sure you are getting it” and ask what is happening or what they have learned so far.

Writers Workshop
We finished up our last review piece Friday!!!! I will be sending home their copy with some comments early next week so you can see how they have been doing. We will be starting our fiction unit soon.

This week we spent some time figuring out what animals are critically endangered animals and decided to look into the Sumatran Rhino and Amur Leopard. We will be doing some more research soon and having our art show from 2:45 on Tuesday, March 12th.
