Happy Groundhog’s Day! Here’s what we are doing in Megan’s room this week! Here is the plan we are using for Groundhog’s Day. You can download the plan by clicking on the image.
And here is the plan we are using for Day 100.
And here is what we are doing in between!
We are starting a new Nonfiction unit--Diving In--in Reader’s Workshop, and boy are we excited. Our kids are already so smart about nonfiction text from all the work we have done in our guided reading groups and during writing, I can’t wait to see what happens! I added the overview with photo images to Unit 5. If you already have it, you can go to your my purchases section and download the updated copy.
We are finishing up our unit on Informational Writing. Next week we are moving on to Opinion Writing. I have added the spreadsheet to the unit. These units do not have mini lessons like our Reader’s Workshop units do. But, these mini lesson titles will help you see how we lay everything out.
We are leaving a day in between our celebrations to catch up. We know from last year that we can’t get through all of those rotations! It just didn’t happen. The kids were stressed, we were stressed. So this year, we are going to slow down a little! On Friday we are going to do a lot of whole group work getting ready for our new unit on Mail and Post Offices.
