Literacy

One of the pieces of homework we have is BTN. BTN is the news just explained better for kids. You watch an episode and do an review on it.  In the review, we color code it. Blue= facts, green= question and red= insights.  It is great and you learn a lot from it:

As homework we do the 100 word challenge (100wc). There is a prompt that you have to write about in 100 words. Eg: a picture, A sentence,  some random words, questions, videos that you have to finish the sentence. It is a lot of fun.
