Today was all about testing! We did a practice test for Benchmark Reading. We will take the real interim tomorrow. This test will assess comprehension, while the other Dibels tests were about phonemic awareness, phonics, letters, words, and remembering sentences.
Mrs. Park was absent so we continued our Lunar New Year study and listened to a story Grace Lin wrote about the Chinese New Year. Then, we did a guided drawing with her and drew a dragon. I'll put the video in below in case you would like to draw a dragon as well! There are other Grace Lin videos on YouTube. She is a wonderful author and writes books for the little guys and novels for the older kids.
We listened to a story called The Runaway Wok, b Ying Chang Compestine. Ask me to retell the story.
Have a nice evening!
