|This is a bilingual Spanish-English classroom. We
are building our English vocabulary rapidly! First, the class read and discussed a variety
of books about apples. Then we brainstormed adjectives which would describe apples. We
went to other classroom pages on the project to see if students had words we had
forgotten, and we found a few. We added those to the list, and then the members of the
class who wanted to work on a class poem worked together with Ms Turetzky. Some
children wanted to write their own poems and Mrs. Nixon was available to help them.
The Arizona State Standards addressed in the lesson were:
Reading: Foundations #1: Use phonetic skills to decode words.
