For the 2nd week of school and literacy, we read and wrote about several fascinating subjects. We did many things involving reading in our 'Integrated Literacy' this week, such as reading group books, website articles, and our own silent reading book. We also started writing our own paragraphs using LEAF organizers, which are helpful papers for learning how to write paragraphs. We wrote these, basing them on Newsela articles that we chose ourselves.
We all have read and wrote so many things and most of us feel as if we are improving from last year. Most of our techniques have proven to be very useful. Many things are working out for us, such as our reading groups. We can read in different places, by ourselves and with Ms.Chelsea, depending on the sort of support we need. But even if some of us aren't pros, we all have our strengths, and sometimes literacy isn't one. But we all keep improving and most of us, having lots of fun!
Integrated Literacy this week turned out to be very successful and, as its title says, integrated.
