This morning the learners had a wonderful lesson about where garbage comes from and where it goes. We read them a true story about the garbage barge. The title of the book was “Here Comes The Garbage Barge.” This lesson lead to a very fruitful discussion that took place before the kindes went home at noon.
We also had a follow-up writers workshop lesson after recess. The topic was about how to add more information and details to our books. The mini-lesson discussed how to write a “twin sentence” in our stories. The idea behind the lesson was to help the children learn how to add more details and information to their books, by adding a follow-up sentence to each fact or piece of information.
