Writer’s Workshop, Cause and Effect, and Life Long Ago

on November 14, 2013

In Writer’s Workshop we have been learning how to write in journals. We learned to write in complete sentences and to write what we saw and felt during a time in our life.






In our read aloud we have been working on finding examples of cause and effect. This can be a tricky concept, but it think we are starting to get the hang of it!

In social studies we have been comparing life long ago to life now. On Tuesday we use the smart board to sort things items from the past and present.

Today we learned about what school was like long ago. This kids love making comparisons from the past to present time. Can you imagine that they did not have iPads or projectors in the past?! They also thought it was interesting that schools were only one room and students had to bring fire for the fireplace to keep warm. 🙂

On a side note, our room does not always look so dark, the smart board just is easier to see when the lights in the front of the room are turned off. 🙂
Have a good night!
