A Big Bite

It was a short week for students in room 23 given the two half days, but we kept right on working! We finished chapter 4 in math and Mrs. Y came in to work on open response questions with us. 12 students achieved a score of 4 or higher and we are hoping that this will be enough to keep the "4" on our door. We learned about the atmosphere in science and started our study of Canada. In reader's workshop, we have continued with The Family Under the Bridge, by Natalie Savage Carlson, and we are reaching some important turning points in the story. We are using all of the skills we are learning in reading to improve our skills in writer's workshop. The children have been writing personal narratives that are tied to strong emotions. Everyone howled at my story, ask your children to tell you about it!
Thanks for all of the wonderful donations that have been pouring in for the food pantry, your generosity is overwhelming!
The Walmsley family surprised us with an early Christmas present! They shared new Expo markers, pencils, erasers and glue sticks with everyone. It was a great treat and we all appreciate it very much. Thanks Walmsley Family!
Our chorus concert will be this Friday. It should be a great show!
It was nice to see all of you this week at conferences. Working together as a team is the best way to help children be the most successful and I appreciate all of your efforts in helping make the school experience at JFK so successful.
Have a great weekend and see you on Friday!
Mrs. W
