Mrs. Murphy's Musings
News from Room 22 - September 28, 2015
First Grade Happenings -
We had such a great week in Room 22. The children have been so excited by Writer's Workshop. At this point in the year, I am praising their efforts as authors and we are discussing creativity in our sentences and sharing where we find our inspiration for different writing pieces. Editing has been minimal and will increase over the next few weeks.
My teacher code is : cmurphy84
