This week was a short week for us. We had parent conferences on Monday morning and then staff development in the afternoon. (I was honored to present on guided reading and I. LOVED. IT. I loved helping teachers. We had SUCH great conversation and many wonderful questions were asked.) It was 7 kinds of crazy! The day flew by and then the rest of the week seemed SOO slow! Ya know that feeling, right??
This week we reviewed repeating patterns and learned about additive patterns (growing patterns). I’m telling ya’ll, I have a bright group of kiddos! They totally got it! Here are some pictures of their additive patterns they made as we discussed that not all additive patterns are linear.
We are hittin’ guided reading head on now! I’m really being challenged by these smart kids! I don’t know how to teach anything other than K or 1 so these high readers are beginning to scare me! During guided reading, we love to wear our “reading glasses”. They definitely make a difference!
We worked on retelling the story across our fingers during reader’s workshop.
I couldn’t resist showing you these words that my kids made and were SO proud of! I let them use my phone to snap a picture, which they thought was awesome! Can you read them?
