It was just another day.
I started the day by giving prizes for the kids who did home reading last night. I had eleven kids read on RAZ Kids last night and am hoping the four prizes I gave away will inspire the others.
We tackled the long e today and most of the kids did great! The students really seem to have turned a corner on their vowels since they came back from winter break.
We did a wonder wall! I have been wanting to do this for a few years since I saw it on Instagram and with our new unit about animals in winter, this was the perfect time to set it up. We talked about shallow and deep questions and I was pretty impressed that most of the questions were really thoughtful.
In the afternoon we started learning about migration- our first sub theme.
I left school quickly for my massage appointment.
I am still taking apart the sleeve:( I had better wear this sweater a lot once it is fixed!
