Picture this…Our Class at Work!

We’ve spent some time this week working with our reading partners.

We practiced summarizing our texts and capturing highlights from our reading.

In writing, we worked with others to whittle down ideas that we can write about for our Memoir writing unit.

It helped to talk through ideas to identify which ones are meaningful for us, which ones will give us a lot to write about, and make for an interesting story for our audience to read.

We’ve also been focusing on 6 different “signposts” that readers can encounter.

    The signposts that readers come across are: 1) Contrasts and Contradictions 2) Tough Questions 3) Aha Moments 4) Again & Again 5) Words of the Wiser 6) Memory Moments Ask your child to tell you more about each one of these!
