STWEAM! Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Kid President, and What is your Dream?
Students viewed a Kid President video and also read several Read Works articles about Martin Luther King Jr. and his hopes and dreams for the world. Students turned and talked with a partner about what dreams they have to make the world a better place. Soon students will record this in writing and illustration into their I Wonder Journals. Just a reminder STWEAM days happen every Wednesday. STWEAM stands for Science & Social Studies-Technology-Writing-Engineering-Art-Mathematics. Fyi the R for reading is in everything we do!!!!

Daily 5 CAFE Literacy Workshop
During the first two weeks of school the class has built their READ to Self stamina to 38+ mins. During Read to Self every student must: read the whole time, stay in one spot, read with a silent or level 0 voice, ignore distractions, build stamina, and persevere. The reader at this time of the year, must read one of the following three ways: read by the words, read by the pictures, or retell the book. If every student does this, they will become a better reader. This impressive stamina building will be priceless for our literacy workshop work throughout the year, and will enable MB to meet and work with students. Our impressive work has inspired our 3/4 Multi age buddies too! Soon students will have the chance to shop for eight new good fit books, one challenge book, and one holiday choice using the I PICK method.
