We have finished our first quarter and our foray into reading and writing narrative works. As our "celebration" and end of quarter activity, we "published" and decorated some six word memoirs to hang on our wall.
It has been exciting for the students to notice similarities in their own ideas as well as make connections with memoirs that are already posted. They have worked really hard and learned a lot. I hope that it will transfer to our next unit: Reading Informational Text.
We're starting the new unit Tuesday and so are THREE STUDENT TEACHERS. How am I going to manage that with the very likely chance that my evaluation will be in the next few weeks? Magic. And donuts. And shopping.
