The children are actively engaged in our Adventure theme. They are practicing many reading and comprehension skills including inferences, cause and effect, summarizing, and sequencing, and they will soon be ready for their next challenge. Barnesville grandparents, Bob and Betsy Wilbur, will be paying us an awesome visit at the end of November to talk about rock climbing. Mr. Wilbur's demonstration is the perfect way to enrich their reading of the story, Cliffhanger.
The mystery book reports were awesome! The students were so excited to share their mysteries with their classmates. This month the students will choose their favorite picture book to read to the class. It is important to practice reading their book at home. This reading activity is a wonderful time for the children to strengthen their oral presentation skills and also to share the joy of picture books.
