Ms. Goodwin/April 25th - May 6th
OUR FIRST 2 WEEKS TOGETHER!
We had a great first 2 weeks getting to know each other and adjusting to this transition! We were able to get our reading groups going again last week and have begun developing our routines!
We have been reviewing story elements (characters, setting, problem/solution, etc.) and learning to improve our writing by stretching out a small moment and using describing words to make our writing clearer.
To help us see how author's use the strategies we are learning about, we read these great books this week . . . . .
We have been working on simple addition and subtraction and the difference between the two. We have also had lots of fun practicing these concepts in our Math stations!
Happy Bear taught us the difference between wanted and unwanted touches and how to keep our bodies safe!
WE HAD OUR GLOW IN THE DARK APEX FUN RUN!
CLARA LOVE HAS BABY CHICKS!!
A HUGE thank you to everyone who sent in treats for teacher appreciation week! I appreciate your generosity and making me feel so welcome!
WE LEARNED ALL ABOUT CINCO DE MAYO AND EVEN LEARNED THE MEXICAN HAT DANCE WITH OUR FOURTH GRADE BUDDIES!
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL OF OUR KINDERGARTEN MOMS!
With the end of the year quickly approaching, we have lots of fun events coming up, as well as our end of year assessments!
Beginning next week, we will be conducting benchmark assessments in Math and Writing and end of year DRA testing.
