Happy February!

I can't believe it's already February. It's actually the 100th day of school today! Where has the time gone? As we are getting later in the year we have talked about "stepping up" our thinking and really proving why and how we know. I'm excited to watch them continue to grow!

Big Questions

We've started to really dig into Informational Reading. To kick off our study we will be look at different "Big Questions" each week. Our focus this week was on "What surprised me?". As we read different articles and books we looked for what the author told us that surprised us. Using this as a different lens into learning how to understand and read Informational Reading.

Next week on Friday, we will be participating in the IRE Fair of Hearts. We will have a time in the morning to exchange Valentine's Cards. There is a letter that is being sent home today with everyones names. They can also make and bring in a box or bag to collect their Valentines in.
