Reading: The past few weeks we have spent a lot of time practicing different strategies to help think about our comprehension as we read! We are working towards taking control of our reading lives and finding ways to better them. Encourage your child to make "think marks" with sticky notes or to do a comprehension check as they read.
PBL: We have been working on answering the question, "What are the rights and responsibilities of a citizen at home, school, state and country?" Students were split up into groups to learn about their rights and responsibilities in one of those places. Then, they switched and taught each other what they learned. We also continued to practice interviewing each other for our upcoming PBL project. We watched a kid president video, and the students analyzed what he did well and what he could improve. We created a list of interview expectations from that. I look forward to seeing where this PBL takes us!
