Last week, we answer questions like what is a blog and why do people blog? Now it's time to join the fun. Blogging will be a way for us to express our thoughts, ideas, and feelings about our hobbies and interests. We'll establish an online community of writers and work on strategies to develop our writer voices, such as focusing on a topic, understanding our audience, and word choice.
In reading, we are continuing to talk about reading strategies, such as asking questions, making connections, and monitoring comprehension. We are recording our thoughts in our reader notebook and using a mix of independent reading books, read alouds, and short stories.
This week we began Wordly Wise unit 2 vocabulary. We will be working in this unit every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for the next two weeks.
