Moose Minute

Mrs. James' 1st Grade Class - Crozet Elementary School

This Week's Sneak Peek: September 20, 2013


Crozet Elementary students celebrated International Dot Day! We read The Dot and created our own dot art to hang in the hallway. All kindergarten and first graders "connected the dots" in the K-1 stairwell. Stop by for a look!

The Dot


Tuesday was our first day of guided reading groups! Students are grouped across the three first grade classrooms. Most students have sight words and nightly text copies for reading practice. Fluency reading books will come home soon!


We enjoyed a surprise lunch outside! The weather was perfect for an impromptu lunch by the butterfly garden. In the afternoon we continued our travels in Crozet, and enjoyed watching the Crozet Rap. I told the class I would share the link with you!



We love Ralph! One of our favorite times of day is read aloud. We are reading The Mouse and the Motorcycle and are enjoying every minute! Ask your child about Ralph's recent encounter with a vacuum cleaner.


Writing workshop ROCKS! Our class loves to write and publish books. This week we worked on books about things that we like. We love to share our writing with our friends!
