Multiage 1&2 News
Are you afraid of bats? This week, 1&2 Multiage students began studying bats. We read books, wrote and illustrated poems, learned songs, and played games. Ask your child to teach you to play The Echolocation Game. We learned to tell the difference between fact and opinion. We learned that much of what we think we know about bats is not true. Do you think bats are blind? Ask your child for the correct answer. We collected specialized vocabulary words from our reading and created our own Bat Words Glossary. Ask your child to tell you what nocturnal means. It has been a very batty week!
During Writer’s Workshop, the students practiced writing a whole Small Moments story from start to finish. Students used a graphic organizer to first plan out their story, telling what happened in order. Then students took their graphic organizers and turned them into full sentences with lots of details. Next week they will be assessed on their writing. They will have to plan, write, revise, and illustrate a whole Small Moment story. Brainstorm with your student what they may want to write about. New babies, family trips, holidays, and play dates are all favorite topics! We also took a short break to write a fun story entitled “If I had a Bat for a Pet!” Ask your student to tell you about it.
Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend,
