This week, we visited many classrooms during writing instruction. Our students are involved in all stages of the writing process. From drawing pictures, brainstorming ideas, discussing ideas with peers, pre-writing with a graphic organizer, drafting, and editing, they are working hard. Our teachers are providing students with feedback both individually and in small groups. Students have daily opportunities to practice writing and we are excited by the growth we see in our student writers.
We had a wonderful week filled with learning at Jackson school. Small group instruction for reading has started in all of our classrooms. During these groups, teachers target their instruction to student needs while other students have time for meaningful independent practice of their reading skills.
Our students and staff had a very productive week at Jackson school. Our acceleration time has begun! This is thirty minutes per day of additional literacy instruction outside of our daily readers’ workshop. This time is targeted to student needs! For some students it serves as intervention, for some it’s supporting their grade level work, and for others it is spent extending their skills. We are excited to be running our full instructional schedule!
This week certainly brought the start of autumn! It’s a great time to label your child’s jackets and sweatshirts. Make sure to check the daily weather forecast too since the weather fluctuates quite a bit from day to day.
Our week at Jackson School was filled with meaningful learning! Our students are working on passion projects and posing questions to research, daily writing in writer’s notebooks, meeting in small groups as readers and writers, and discussing learning in groups. Next week, our teacher teams will review our reading benchmark data to determine student strengths and areas for growth. This will help us make sure we support and challenge each student.
