It has been a short week, but we were glad to spend it with your child! Students made progress this week on their personal narratives as they practiced writing exciting leads and “exploding the moment” by writing a dramatic scene in slow motion. In community meeting on Tuesday, we continued our discussion on brave and safe spaces by focusing on the topic of active listening. Here are some questions you can ask your child about the week:
What turning point have you decided to write about for your personal narrative? -
What dramatic scene did you “explode” in your narrative? -
What game did you play during Community Meeting, and how did it relate to active listening?
We look go forward to seeing you for parent conferences on Thursday and Friday.
See you soon, Julia & Tim
