Newsletter and Spelling List – Week of Oct. 1-5

Readers Workshop

This week in Reader’s Workshop we started learning about creating images when we read. This can mean making a picture in our mind when we read, but it also means imagining what our other senses would notice as well. We think about what we would hear, smell, taste and feel, too. This helps the students really get deep into what is happening in the book.


Next week’s list is on the back of this newsletter.


We have started work on repeated addition and arrays!
