Here are some updates... Readers' Theatre has been outstanding! The students are extremely excited about their performances... We've recently watched a couple of Readers' Theatre videos (you can find them here on our Language Arts Blog), and the students talked about how to complete a successful performance. Their rubric can be found on this post. Please note that all of their scripts are available online, so that they can practice at home if they so choose!
Students have chosen an animal to research. They will be asked to identify ways that their animal has adapted to their habitat throughout each stage of life, and to infer possible threats to their ability to thrive. We'll continue our research and discussion through the lens of survival versus extinction as we go.
The students will be (for sure this time!) finishing their paragraphs and publishing them into our second magazine. This magazine will be published online, as well. (If you feel like reminiscing, here is a link to our past magazine!)
Have an outstanding weekend and be proud of your children! They've been working hard and have come a long way.
All the best,
