Our first grade students proudly brought home their latest project from the LRC. In this mini unit, we focused on how readers use the author's words to visualize. This skill was taught inside the classroom and reinforced in the LRC. We practiced this skill with the Emberly's book called "Little Green Monster." Students listened to the text carefully. The author uses simple, yet specific descriptions that the students tried to capture in the creation of the own monster. I think they turned our GREAT!
I'm a working parent. I'd love the opportunity to peek into my children's learning community but time and schedules don't always allow that. I'm hoping this blog will allow you to peek in our LRC so that you get a glimpse of all the fun and learning taking place.
