The Juliano Journal
Week of October 10-14
Hello! It was a great week in our classroom. Today our students met with their Reading Buddies. We are buddies this year with Mrs. Merlin's kindergarten class. The students had so much fun getting to know each other!
This week many of our students started WEB conferencing. Students who did not conference this week will start conferencing next week. I am so thankful for the parents who are able to make the commitment to come in each week and talk with the students about the books they are reading. The children are so excited!
We are having a Halloween party on Monday, October 31st . The students may bring their costumes in a bag and put them on at 2:00. Please be certain that your child’s costume fits over his/her existing clothing. Also, please be sure that your child does not bring any type of toy weapons with his/her costumes. Thank you for your cooperation! Our Woods Creek Halloween parade will be held on Halloween this year during the school day. It will begin at 2:15 p.m. and will end when all students have walked around the school in their costumes. The parade will begin as students exit the main entrance and parade around the school. Parents may stand outside anywhere around the school to watch. It's going to be so much fun!
I am looking forward to talking with everyone at Parent Teacher conferences next week.
Have a great weekend!
students will complete several tasks to show that they understand the importance of working and growing together to make their community a better place. During shared reading time, we read a book called Uncle Willie and the Soup Kitchen which showed students the importance of helping out others in a community. Next week we will read another book by this same author and students will be comparing the setting, plot and theme of the two stories.
In writing, we discussed narrative writing and the different components of this type of writing. Soon the students will be composing narrative stories about people who work together to solve a problem in their community.
