The students were thrilled to hear that they all have their own account on RAZ Kids in 2nd grade! We went to the computer lab yesterday and started using it. You can use this great resource for reading at home, too. Go to Helpful Links--> Listen to Reading--> Raz-Kids.com. Teacher Username is: cbuti. Happy Reading!
We have been building stamina for Read to Someone over the past two week and next week the students will choose Read to Self or Read to Someone. Thank you for sending in headphones- we will begin using them next week as we launch Listen to Reading!
The Writers of 2B have been working on Small Moments writing. This week they worked on zooming into a small topic (not a Big Fat Watermelon Topic) and Stretching out the moment. I assigned their Writing Partner and their Writing Place in the room, and they have been talking with their partner about their plans for writing each day, and what they've accomplished each writing session.
