This week we listened to the story Legend of the Poinsettia retold by Tomie DePaola. Take a peek at the story!
Students have been working on reading logs as they read chapter books. The reading log helps students break down the chapters and is a great tool to start discussions with classmates. I have been trying to get the logs on-line digitally incase students forget to bring them home. I am having trouble getting them on the blog but have managed to get them on the class Weebly. Click on the Weebly link to the right. The logs are under the reading log tab.
