  10. 10.

They confirmed and continued making new predictions. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Heather’s Corner <ul><li>I was able to have my 1 st and 2 nd graders tell me the story of Cinderella before reading the Carribean version of it. After completing the story, they completed a writing assingment with picture. </li></ul><ul><li>For the students that each of us work with, we need to be able to meet them where they are at in order to help build on it. </li></ul>
