You're It

Here is this week's, "It!" #welldone #goodforyou #ladybuglife

A Big Bite

Have three weeks of school really passed?  Time is going by so quickly!  So quickly that there aren't many pictures this week.  😇  We finished unit one in math on place value and everyone did a great job on the assessment.  You can check test scores on the answer sheet that went home today or by logging in to the Pearson website.  We will begin addition and subtraction next week.  Improving reading stamina and building a community of readers and writers has been our focus in reader's and writer's workshop.  There is so much to focus on during the launch of these workshops.  Keep reading!
We will begin learning about maps next week in Social Studies as we continue to work on geography skills. Dance Party Friday and Technology Workshop were highlights for many students this week.
I am so proud to teach this class of kind, caring and considerate young people.  I can tell already that they are an amazing group and I cannot wait to watch them grow and learn this year!
Have a great weekend!

A Big Bite

It was another great week in room 23!We are continuing to build community and establish routines both academically and socially.  We focused on math, reading and writing this week and will continue to do so next week.  We experienced our first "Creative Arts Friday," and it was a big hit. In poetry workshop we learned about John Keats and his poem, Song About Myself.  We began writing Biopoems and should finish next week.
We started our week with our first grade level community meeting.  Our mantra for the week was "Getting to Know You!"  We even learned some new yoga poses. 😂Ask your student about the pictures below.
Have a great weekend!
