We were so lucky this week to have the amazing author and illustrator Emma Virjan visit our school! We had so much fun learning about how she makes her stories and pictures. She even read aloud one of her books for us! What a great day!
She even showed us how to draw the pig in a wig!
These are the books that she has out right now!
Click the link below to check out the author's website to learn more about her books and to see some short videos about each book!
Thank you so much to everyone who participated in our 100 Random Acts Of Kindness project for the 100th day of school!
This week we were also able to begin using our Legos that were purchased for us with a LEAF grant! We now have a Lego Storystarters kit! The students build settings and characters with the Legos and use that to write a story. There is also an excellent app that goes with this where they turn their Lego creation into a comic book story! We will be learning that soon.
We have been very busy learning about using context clues to find evidence that might help us figure out unknown words when we read.
We learned that there are several different types of clues that we can look for in the text.
We had time to play some games as groups and we used our AcivExpressions to vote on some answers too!
In writing we are also working on persuasive text. This was a lot of fun! We are finishing up our final paragraphs. I can't wait to read them all!
