To launch our unit on opinions, the first grade students took on the role of taste testers! Each student tried three different kinds of cereal and wrote down words to describe each of them on their post it. Then, they shared their opinion as to which cereal was their favorite and why with their table. The students tried to convince everyone that their favorite cereal was the best. The students had a blast sharing their opinions!
Our 2nd graders have just begun a new and exciting writing unit-poetry! We are learning to look at everyday objects through a poet’s eyes.
In our upcoming lessons, we will be learning how to use line breaks, comparisons and how to add mood to our poems.
Poetry book recommendations:
Flicker Flash by: Joan Bransfield Graham

Students have been working in a digital storytelling application to express their imaginative tales.
Last week, the super readers of K-112 celebrated the end of our reading super powers unit. We have activated all of our reading super powers and we can now defeat any tricky word that stands in our way! Ask us about our powers – picture power, sound power, pointer power, partner power, and many others. We are super readers!
