2nd grade students enjoyed another fractured fairy tale. This week, we read Ninja Red Riding Hood by Corey Rosen Schwartz. This is a fun spin on the beloved classic, with a lot of ninja action included. The students enjoyed comparing and contrasting this story with the classic tale of Little Red Riding Hood.
5th grade students continued their research lesson. This week, our focus was on taking notes using the Trash and Treasure method. The students had an opportunity to work in groups of two and read a short database article on the Spanish American War. They underlined important words as they read. The focus was on finding information that would answer the Five W's: what, where, when, why, and who.
