POINT OF VIEW was an important part of our PERSUADE unit. I displayed an opinion and asked my students whose opinion it was. How might that opinion change if it came from a different person? Who might have a different opinion, and why? 🤔
This is progress. Proud to see our school system, and soon the state of VA, taking steps towards recognizing this important day.
While packing up my classroom, which was frozen in time on March 12th, I found lessons and anchor charts that I had used at various times of the year. I realized that some should really be “beginning of the year” lessons. /ed/ endings is one of them. This is a poster I made from one of my resources. As my groups read their leveled books, I’d pick out words with -ed endings. A quick activity was for students to place their words in the correct column on the poster. Many of my Spanish speakers use the /id/ ending for all words, so it’s crucial to teach from the beginning that there are 3 possible sounds for -ed. And /id/ is the least frequent.
There is a lot of learning to be done; and not just in this moment, but for as long as it takes. Thank you @jane_mount for this compilation of book titles. I’m starting with Stamped: Racism, Antiracism and You and How To Be An Antiracist.
Packed up year #15. 💕 I’ll never forget this one!
I am doing more grammar lessons during distance learning than I usually do. Today is a lesson on Plural Possessive Nouns, but I think we need a quick mini lesson on irregular plurals first!! The student activity is a Google Slide shared through Google Classroom. Grammar for the distance learning win;)
