Welcome back to my 11th instalment of Writing Sundays. I’m so glad you are here.
My balanced literacy lessons usually include reading, writing, visualizing, speaking, listening and of course, movement to make the brain and body happy too. This time, we discussed and gave examples of some of the vocabulary Nina Laden uses in her book When Pigasso Met Mootisse. It was an active lesson with each student coming to the pocket chart to introduce a word. After, we made a prediction based on the vocabulary and the front cover of the book.
We will read the first section of her book on Monday and practice writing the main idea and supporting details of the section of the book. I can’t wait to show the students books about the real Picasso and Matisse and do our own interpretations of those artists’ works. Stay tuned…
