A lot has happened since we last met. It was so nice to catch up with Lauren and see how far our stds have come and how our goals have impacted their learning.
I was really proud of my students as we have been using the COPs and ARMs editing strategy and spent some time with it. The children have become more familiar with the language and know that editing is not just about fixing fullstops and capital letters.
A few weeks ago Tiffany showed me Bump it Up. I couldn't wait to show my class as they loved it. We talked about all the components, what they meant and what it would look like. It was so good to see one of my students thrive on it. She had been struggling with cohesion but every time she saw me she did not know what she needed help with. The Bump It Up really helped her see that cohesion was an area for her. I could see that she didn't know how to improve the structure.
My goal for next time is to model how to improve cohesion.
