Weekly News (11/17-11/26)

As a class we’ve decided to write and post weekly updates.  The students will be working in groups to write about what they’ve learned during the week.  Each week groups will take turns typing and posting the updates to the class blog.

This activity helps the students reflect on what they’ve learned, work together, and practice important writing.

Reading

Ms. Humphrey’s class has started the nonfiction unit.  We have began to look at text features.  We have been looking at pop-out sentence, blurbs, main ideas, box and bullets.  Box and bullets are when you write the main idea in the box at the top of your page and then you write at least 3 supporting details.  Then you get to share it with the whole class!

Fun Things

The power outage…It was the end of Spanish.  The lights started flicking on and off most of us panics. Senora Guillen said, “everybody sit down.”

The new carpet…It was the middle of word study.  Then then janitor came in and said, “your carpet is here!”  And then everybody went wild!
