Literacy: In reading workshop, the children learned how to write book reviews. They each picked at least one fairy tale to review which included a summary, opinion, and recommendation. Also, our sixth grade buddies came to YES on Wednesday to share the children’s book they had written. Second graders then shared their published writing and some even did a bit of shared reading with their new friend. A session of TFK rounded out the week. In writing workshop, the children created memory books. They also made travel brochures for the incoming second graders. Finally, they wrote something special for Father’s Day.
Handwriting: Writers wrote number words and antonyms.
Math: Mathematicians worked with tangrams. They solved tangram puzzles and made their own puzzles to solve.
Theme: This week scientists put together all of their knowledge and created rocky shore posters. The class also focused on being a positive part of a community today during our Field Day adventure. Thank you to the many volunteers who put in countless hours to make this special day a reality for the students. They loved it!
Miscellaneous: Thank you all for a great year! It’s been a privilege to be a part of your child’s education. This class has amazing potential and they’ve been a joy to teach. I look forward to seeing how they continue to grow and learn over their next couple of years at YES. See you around town!
