Curriculum Connections

Our room is piloting the Pearson Math Curriculum for the district this fall. We have access to all three grade levels, 2/3 and 4 and Mary is planning lessons primarily with one focus for all three grades as much as possible.   Access the math website here.  
Our team is implementing the Lucy Calkins Writer's Workshop this year.  We work on creative writng almost daily.  The first two units are focused on increasing a student's ability to write a personal narrative with flair and confidence.  Students are really enjoying this curriculum and their writing shows it!     Here's the Lucy Calkins website for anyone wanting to see the strategies we're using with our young writers!
Language Arts
We work on our reading skills by actually reading chapter books, poetry and non-fiction during the year. This occurs in voluntary homework book clubs and literature circles which are run during the school day.  Skill work is interspersed throughout the day as "teachable moments" arise or Mary determines students are developmentally ready. 

Here is a really cool website for reading.   There are bibliographies of suggested titles for readers of all ages.  

Here's another great website for lists of books suggested for children.
