Legally Blonde Jr. The Musical
Mrs. Deitchler and
Mrs. Tuecke are team teaching a group of 2nd and 3rd graders. This
group meets daily for 30 minutes to review
Principles of Fundations being
taught in their classrooms. This includes decoding
words by syllables and understanding spelling
options for different sounds - especially long vowels. The students also work on high frequency and sight words that don't necessarily follow spelling rules but appear so often in print. The teachers meet
briefly each week to share duties in planning and gathering what's needed for the week's lessons. Each Friday, the students write in a
journal so they have the opportunity to apply what they've learned about these things. Mrs. Deitchler and Mrs. Tuecke reply to
students. This weekly exchange gives them the opportunity to get to know students better and provides encouragement to students to know that what they write is important for an audience!
