Hansel, Gretel and Fred

 Why I LOVE Shared Reading!

Today we presented Hansel, Gretel and Fred to family and friends.  I find Reader's Theater (Shared Reading) to be such an important part of a classroom curriculum.  The students build confidence and their love for reading.  As we develop and look at new scripts the students practice all their reading strategies, build meaning and comprehension, work as a team and read aloud while performing.

Our Gingerbread Baby, Girl and Boy Are Lost!

Our gingerbread child has gone missing!  Today we worked together with a partner to peer edit our "Lost" papers and add details to our writing.  We are hoping that someone will help us find our gingerbread child soon!  Check back tomorrow to read our "Lost" papers to identify the missing gingerbread child.
