In Language, students are finishing up their Narrative stories. They were asked to write a fictional story about anything they wanted and boy oh boy, they write and write and WROTE! They had a checklist of the Success Criteria, as well as a peer editing checklist. The students had some reservations about peers reading their work, but realized that some of their comments and suggestions would make their stories even better!
I have been reading many of them over the last few days and they are so well written and very interesting!
In Math, we are finishing up our Fraction Unit and will be connecting this with decimals.
They finished their "Fraction Pizzas". Equivalent fractions were included, but was a challenging concept for some.
Some things to practice over the summer:
*Basic Multiplication and Division facts
*Sight words (see link) Dolch Sight Words
*Keep a journal to continue practicing your writing
*Read, read, read!!
