Jet’s Pizza Night: Thursday, February 21

In ELA, we’re reviewing the features of narrative writing.

We read through two mentor texts and highlighted some positive things we noticed, as well as some areas that the writer could improve. We are preparing for our post-assessment in narrative writing which we will begin next week.

We’re trying some new things in math to build community, discussion, and deeper thinking processes.

We’ve tried collaborative problem solving by working around the room. Students were presented with a complex problem and needed to converse with each other using strategies that we’ve learned.
