In reading, we have started a new unit on Just Right Books. For this unit, students will be choosing their own leveled texts and using reading strategies to read the words as well continuing to do things we have been building on such as talking about the picture, thinking about the story and thinking about their favorite parts and any connections they may have with the story.
In writing, we have begun looking at Donald Crew's Night at the Fair. We have been using this book to inspire our own writing and include craft moves that Donald Crew uses into our own books!
