5th- 4th

We just finished reviewing how to use a dictionary. The kids specifically worked on using the guide words. We put our skills to use with dictionary races and learned some new vocab!


They are amazing! They are learning so fast how to find their books on the shelves with call numbers. So far they have learned how to read call numbers and find fiction books. Yes, we had book scavenger hunts. I gave them a title and call number and they had to find the book on the shelf before another person found their book. Nothing like a little competition to review. 


We are talking about "just right books". They tried on shirts that were too small, too large and just right! We discussed how to open a book and decide if it is a just right book and the importance of getting a just right book. 2nd graders practiced reading to stuffed animals. For each class I have also set out "just right books" they can choose from.  


We are reading, reading and reading! I am trying to introduce them to fun books they may not have heard. This week we read There was an Old Lady who Swallowed a Fly and did a promethean activity. My goal with K is to get them excited about books!
