Students have settled into a wonderful routine and have made their classroom feel like our home away from home! This week, we spent a lot of time working on fostering independence with literacy tasks. Our focus has been on read to self and read to someone. We are working on building our stamina and students have already successfully reached up to 16 minutes of independent literacy activities!
We also began working with our first capacity matrix of the year, practicing keeping track of our own learning. Students worked together on our 'classroom routines' matrix and are working on things like brainstorming and problem-solving independently.
Below are a few pictures from our classroom this week!
