Speaking of writing, your child has been writing practically EVERY day! Check Edline for video links that only we can see (they are unlisted). These links, located in the comments, show specific feedback on your child's writing. This quarter, we are focusing on creative and narrative writing. If you'd like to help your child at home with this, watch the videos together, and then share strong verbs, sensory details, and imagery that YOU notice in your own reading each day.
In class, we are reading independently EVERY day. This week, we also read about Colin Kaepernick and a narrative from Julia Alvarez. I'm not sure if students liked reading those as much as reading their own writing, however!
To see ANY and ALL of what we're doing in class (especially helpful if a child is absent), see our "Scholar's Notes" located under the "Student Resources" tab. Ask your child - he or she should be able to show you.
