Today, we met the author Margriet Ruurs!
Ms. Ruurs has written over 20 children's books and came to share her talents with us today. First, she presented information about the Yukon and her experiences in Canada with us since she knew we had read her book, Me and Martha Black. Then she engaged the class in writing descriptives poems. We can't wait to finish them tomorrow before we meet with her again!
Think about it: What is "descriptive writing?" How can we "show" instead of "tell?"
Here's your flipped classroom video to watch for tomorrow:
1: What is word form?
2: What is one question that you have about place value or word form?
3: What good test taking skills does Shaun practice in the video?
