Writing Workshop News

We wrote our gingerbread stories this week and came up with some very creative ideas about who or what chased our gingerbread person. We continued our list writing with inspiration from the book, The Important Thing

It's Hanukkah time

We began our holiday studies this week by learning about Hanukkah. Bryce's mom came in to help us learn to play dreidel and we marble painted our own dreidels

Reading Workshop

We have been studying characters in the books we have been reading. Characters can show lots of different feelings in stories and we have been learning to read and tell stories with expression.
