Happy early Valentine's Day!
This week students will work on reworking a story from my life. Students will first critique the story deciding on what needs work. They will then get into groups to revise the story adding different craft elements. This will be a two week process. I'm hoping to hang the students new stories outside in the hall way.
In the meantime during writer's workshop, students will continue to write base stories (the base version of a story). Students will then choose one story to rework.
We are focusing on text features and their importance. We will continue to add text features to our class anchor chart. Students will then notice and label text features on their own in an informational text. Students will work on a non fiction passage on Thursday. We have our released STAAR practice coming up on February 27 and 28.
Students will be working on their map skills. They will answer various map questions in partners or in groups. The maps will cover the five maps we are adding to the states list.
