This past week in reading, we revisited paying close attention to how our characters were feeling in the beginning, middle, and end of a book. Each day we read a story and stopped three different times to discuss the characters’ feelings. We noticed that almost always our characters’ feelings do change! Often the main character started off happy, in the middle something happened to make them feel scared, sad, or mad, but by the end the problem was resolved. We compared the characters feelings in our books to a rollercoaster with lots of ups and downs. We also noticed that when our characters’ feeling change they are learning an important lesson.
This week, we took our Unit 7 assessment – our first graders did great!!! Next week, we will start our last math unit on 2-digit addition!!
