1st and 2nd graders build academic stamina at Davis
First and second grade students at Davis have been learning about building stamina in reading and math. In reading, students are reading to themselves for longer periods of time. We have discussed and modeled the three ways to read and the difference between “real” reading and “fake” reading.
In math, students are working in cooperative learning groups and applying new skills, through games and manipulatives. In writing, students are learning to increase their stamina by writing for longer periods of time. They are also learning new writing strategies to increase the details in their writing.
