The students are getting used to the routine and we are able to get more done! Last week, we had math and spelling assessments. This week, we will have writing and reading assessments. The assessments allow for each student to work on individual goals.
During forest Friday, the students were assigned clan groups. Each clan will study a biome and an animal that lives in that biome. The students also learned about the difference between drawings and scientific diagrams. We ended our week drinking lemon balm tea during our tea ritual.
In writing, students have been collecting ideas for narrative writing and in reading they are working on building stamina and jotting as they read.
This week, students will work on choosing 'just right" books and setting personal goals during reading time.
Our class will lead all school morning meeting on Friday from 7:40-8:00 am.
I have created a donorschoose.org fundraiser for our class to raise money for comfortable, flexible seating. Here is the link. Please share this page. When people begin to donate, donations will begin to get matched by organizations. Before we know it, we'll have flexible seating in the classroom! Thank you so much for your help spreading the word!
Make it a great week,
