To keep up their great growth in reading and writing, the students in 2B each have a reading and writing goal that they are working on throughout the week. In reading, they are working on a “Café” strategies in one of the categories of comprehension, accuracy (in reading words), fluency, and expanding vocabulary. In writing, they are each working on a specific element of the six traits of writing: voice, organization, ideas, conventions, word choice, and sentence fluency. The students have been very thoughtful in paying attention to these goals in their reading and writing, and it’s neat to see their growth from week to week in these goals. We will continue to add a greater variety of strategies to our reading and writing boards as the year goes on!
