This morning, one of the things we did was to watch an episode of Reading Rainbow. It centered around the book “Amazing Grace,” written by Mary Hoffman. It’s a wonderful Children’s book proving that you can be anything you want to be, no matter what people say or what obstacles you face. Then we got to hear from different people who have overcome adversity, or who are succeeding in things that they were told they could never do. We worked on a reflection worksheet after the video, and students will have this in their folders tonight. It would be a great conversation starter tonight at home – and WOW do we have amazing dreams in this classroom.
This week we will be learning all about Ruby Bridges.
We will also be using the different “there/they’re/their” correctly, working on some reflection writing using google docs, working on prefixes, and continuing with cursive writing and building silent reading stamina.
