Today I reviewed each student’s work from “The Bracelet” that they completed yesterday or for homework last night. I had a conference with each student to talk about how they did on the assignment, and what they could do to improve. Students did very well. In addition to the comprehension questions that students answered from their story, students are also being encouraged to restate their questions in their answers.

Students also reflected on what they are thankful for today in the spirit of Thanksgiving. Even though all students may not celebrate the holiday, I emphasized the importance of feeling thankful. Two students from my block two class, Katie and Elizabeth, found a poem from the book I Like Being Me that was very fitting for today.
