A Week in Review: March 17-21

It was an exciting week in Room 222! 

This week, we had several readers, work together to share their favorite books with us. 

AZ and GS share their favorite Elephant and Piggie Book.

PD and JP share the Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog. 
We also worked on the art of Revising with a buddy. We started by talking about appropriate Writing-Buddy behavior.  

Here is our anchor chart:

Notice how well our buddies followed our expectations!

We also spent time in Genius Hour. See the original post here.

Last, but certainly not least, we read Ibis, A True Whale Story, by John Himmelman.

Here are some thoughts on the story:

We will be working a bit more with Ibis and his story, this week. We are currently studying oceans and working our way through the 4 layers. Stay tuned for more.
