It has been another busy week in the Bair's Den! We wrapped up our Map Skills unit, and all of the students did a FANTASTIC job on their common assessments. We'll be incorporating all of the skills we learned during this unit as we move on to Pennsylvania and the United States during the rest of the school year.
We also finished our first theme in reading where we focused on a variety of skills and strategies. The students continue to learn, use and review these strategies as part of our CAFE menu:
We also just completed talking about asking questions and noting details. Be sure to ask your children about the different types of questions and why it's important to ask questions before, during and after reading.
Time is going so quickly in the Bair's Den. I'm looking forward to meeting many parents at conferences!
