Humbled By Your Appreciation

You guys certainly made Mrs. McDevitt feel appreciated last week! In fact, she was overwhelmed. She has a list of thank you notes to write and has given herself a deadline to keep her on track. Then the surprise of kicking off her birthday was just too much fun! Thank you for your trust. When a teacher feels the trust of her students' families, it makes her work harder.

Our Poetry Journal Returns

The poetry journal took a bit of a hiatus but it is back in book bags this weekend. The illustration above is appropriate as we celebrate Mother's Day. We will have poems for the next few weeks. The learning in Room 116 goes right up until 3:00 on Thursday, May 26.

A Beloved Grandparent

Grandparents are important people. They are crazy in love with their grandchildren, don't necessarily keep bedtimes, always have ice cream on hand and are the biggest cheerleaders around. It has been fun to have so many grandparents join in the Mystery Reader fun. Last week a beloved grandfather took his turn at being the Mystery Reader. If you have not had a turn at being the Mystery Reader and your schedule allows, contact Mrs. McDevitt and she can probably accommodate your schedule.

Mister Matt Encourages You to Spend the Summer at the Public Library

Mister Matt made his last appearance for this school year in Community One! One of the books he brought was the Book With No Pictures. By now, Room 116 can read that book with their eyes closed. The most powerful thing you can do this summer to prevent "summer slide" is to have your child read EVERY day. It happens at Mrs. McDevitt's house so she knows it is possible! Look below for the summer events at the Pike Road Public Library. Join the library's reading book challenge to reward the summer reading you are doing at home.

Happy Mother's Day!

There is a special purse shaped book in your child's book bag that was written for mom. Some were left in cubbies on Friday so several books may make an appearance in Monday's book bag.

Joy of Reading

Mrs. McDevitt was working with a small group of students when the below group of students had their very own story time. Mrs. McDevitt wants her students to love reading when they leave Room 116. Unscripted moments like this melts Mrs. McDevitt's heart.
