Working in teams, we collaborated and produced our own life-size Jack. We measured and labelled different parts of Jack. Our creations are hanging in our classroom. Drop by to check it out!

The students are currently engaged in a unit on Junie B., First Grader (at Last). Many giggles have been heard as Junie B. was the world funniest kindergartener, but is now in first grade. A chapter is read, followed by a group discussion. The students individually compose sentences about key events and add an illustration in their 'booklet' daily. The culminating activity will be to retell the story to a peer, using their 'booklet'.
Everyone is given the opportunity to respond to the text before, during, and after the reading. Eventually the students will develop the capability to focus on the text and increase their comprehension.
