First graders have been working on “Dropping Bad Habits! and Picking Up Good Habits!” One way to get better as a reader is to know your bad habits and to drop them. They have been referencing our newest anchor chart” “Drop That Bad Habit!” On it we talked about:“The Freeze”, “The Tell Me”, “The Mumble” and “The Blooper” We discussed what it meant.
On our other chart, we viewed and talked about how to “Pick Up a Good Habit! After a discussion with questions and answering, and trying it out on our own- we know we must “Check the Picture, Look At All The Parts of the Word- Check It!” Our reading partners can help us drop bad habits by remembering good habits. Later this week these new charts will be sent home in our "reading homework folders". So be on a look out for them.
What we're learning in first grade. Students are also making comments in class! At home add to the posts, too.
