Decoding Words, Bread Mold Growth Activity
Reading and writing traits need to permeate into every subject. For students to become better readers and writers, their strategies must have ample opportunity to be revisited by every teacher in every subject. Team meeting times ensure that team teachers can appraise each other of their curriculums and make connections between different classes.
Our warm up is on decoding words through their parts. I have an exemplar at the top of the graphic organizer, and two words which I want students to practice on their own. We'll follow up with two more terms at the end of class.
We're monitoring the growth of mold after two days. So far, its doesn't look like much, but it's bound to get pretty gross!
