Every Friday we turn out the lights in our classroom and turn on our flashlights for Readers Workshop! On a rainy day like today it was extra dark. Everyone reads quietly and we all have a lot of fun. This is a fun way to promote reading at home too!

One of my favorite "craftivities" that I do... In Readers Workshop I explain how Schema is your background knowledge or all the stuff you already know about. I have the kids create self portraits and then I "open their brains" so all of their schema can pour out! They scream when I cut their beautiful portraits but they LOVE it and it really helps them remember an obscure word like schema.

See if you can guess who is who...

Ok this one is a giveaway

Writing Boot Camp

Writing boot camp has begun in our class! 

Here some soldiers are ready to begin!

We started with step on of the writing process Brainstorming

Here some of our soldiers are beginning their writing

We worked on complete sentences and incomplete sentences but working together to figure out what they were missing or what they had that made them complete. 

Next we help each other edit because we don't leave a man (proper noun) down (they should be capital) 

Finally we army crawl back to work
