· Happy Birthday to Ryan, our only March Birthday
Writing is developing and progressing as well. The students have been identifying nouns in their writing and adding adjectives to improve their describing skills. We also made snowpeople the size of a Borrower character when we had snow the other day. The students loved the activity and enjoyed writing about it.
Reading is going great. The book clubs are reading chapters each day and a few of the groups have finished their books and gone onto a new book. The read aloud of the Borrowers Afield ended the other day and students got to watch a movie version of the book. Next week we will begin the third in the series, The Borrowers Afloat. The children are developing inferencing skills and are impressing me every day with their retelling and summarizing skills.
