Ms. Monks will be working with the children on formulating questions prior to observing. This is the perfect tie-in for our letter person this week!
Our math skills will also emphasize asking and answering questions to provide the children with many opportunities to develop their higher level thinking skills.
When you ask your child questions at home, try to allow "wait time," the time children need to access the information and formulate their answer. Don't feed them answers and don't accept "I don't know" as an answer. Hold them accountable! This is part of developing rigor in a child's learning and a big part of the new Common Core method of instruction.
Have a great week, and as always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send me a note, or set a conference appointment.
