Guided Reading

Today for Guided Reading I was doing Independence Reading and then I did Writers Workshop. For independent reading, I read the book Slumber Party.



For pray, the boys read out from the book and today’s prayer was about the ocean.

If I had a stone my pray  would be: “Dear God thank you for the ocean so we can have nature because animals live in the ocean.”


Today for inquiries Me Anshika Fateh and Manan were working on our Raksha Bandhan Project. For today we wrote about how we celebrate Raksha Bandhan and we started doing a little bit of a dance that we were doing for our project. While we were doing that the rest of the class was doing writer’s workshop.



Today for sports we had a relief teacher but we still had lots of fun.



At the end of the day we went outside and some of the boys played basketball and some were playing handball at the handball courts
