Breakout EDU

The kids did a project with Mr. Charltray where they had to solve math problems in order to get codes which would open a box at each station. When they were finished they "broke out," of the game. The idea of Breakout EDU is to support critical thinking skills, creativity, collaboration, and communication.

Reader's Workshop

This week, as readers, the kids are learning that they need to check on their comprehension and notice when it is breaking down. They have already become longer and stronger readers. We also did some book talks, suggestions, both verbally and in written form. The kids wrote about their reading and made formal book recommendations that we hung on the wall. The recommendations are a great resource for anyone that can't find something to read!


Writer's Workshop

Yesterday and today the kids were brainstorming people in their lives, with whom they spent enough time, to write stories about their adventures. They did some planning first and then picked one of the events to write about, we had some great success!

Playing Target Number...a very strategy based game
