The students used different ways to read and spell words or use words to make sentences
Read to someone using EEKK (elbow to elbow, knee to knee) is a Daily 5 method to read to someone. Before we practised this technique, we discussed our new unit's text type-explanation- explaining what we already know.
After finishing up our ESL Language unit work on procedural writing, the students did some fun activities. One was to make a "Chatterbox" using words or phrases to help practice their new language or use the magnetic word wall to create words.
As a speaking activity and a way to use unit vocabulary , the G3s presented their understanding of the three states of matter and their properties.
To set the context, the story to be sequenced was about a sport's day. First, the students ordered the pictures and the key past tense words. Next, they added the time connectives. Later they arranged the sentences ,using the past tense key words as a prompt, to match up with the pictures.
Each student had a set of cards that they sorted into the correct story order. Next, they retold the story with help, using time connectives words and past tense verbs.
