We love the fall season!
Listening to stories read aloud and discussing what we've read (fiction and non-fiction content) is a lot of fun and opens doors to further learning!
Our students are also diving in with technology and integrating it with reading and writing activities in the library!
One of the books that we read in the library was The Wall by Eve Bunting. During our library class time, we discussed Veterans Day and Memorial Day and the importance of our United States military. It was a great time to reflect and discuss why we honor and appreciate our active duty and military veterans. It was also a time to remember our heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice and are no longer with us.
INTERNATIONAL DOT DAY
This September we celebrated International Dot Day and read the story, The Dot, by Peter Reynolds. During the story, the students made inferences about the characters' thoughts and actions. After the story, the students engaged in a discussion regarding the character changes and theme. It was a great time to dig deeper into the story elements and exercise the students' reading comprehension.
