Morning corner

Inserted Image

The students use their marker boards during our morning corner for writing their number words,  days of the week, drawing out story problems, figuring out coin amounts, etc.  This keeps the students engaged in what they are doing and allows them to become 'teachers' to each other.  We will finish our "Smart Start" section of the Treasures reading program today and will start Unit 1, which will include spelling, on Monday.  Please watch for a packet of materials that will come home on Monday.  We wrote what we wanted to be when we grow up during our writing class and learned how to use some editing marks to change what we wrote.  Their writing partner will help them choose to change at least one thing in their writing before they are allowed to conference with an adult.  This process makes them accountable for their learning as well as their peer's progress.  It also encourages independence and self-directed learning.
