Today, students engaged further in the inquiry process. Students worked on their 'GOING PUBLIC' handouts to write down important information they will use to share out in our next inquiry session. All studnets will be sharing their inquiry stories next Tuesday so practice and be prepared! We also learned the technique of stating at and exciting part and backfilling to catch the readers interest when writing! I guarantee that, if you start using the writing tips I teach you in class, your writing will improve! We continued our 'GLOBAL READ ALOUD' and learned more about life in a third-world country.
