We've focused A LOT on bullies and have read these books.
We completed some character maps and compared Mean Jean and Bootsie Barker.
Today I gave groups a copy of The Recess Queen. We made a list of describing words for Mean Jean. Using Post-Its, the kiddos had to prove it with evidence from the book!
They did a great job with this and shared many examples from the book.
During Math Workshop, I introduced Independent Read. The kids can browse through math books during BUILD. I also plan on including activities for some of the books. This week they can practice writing numbers and filling in the 10 Frames with stickers.
