Fantastic Readers

by Lalith & Rebecca

We really love reading and our teacher teaches us to stretch out the letters in the words and she says to read slowly. Mrs. McCallough and Rasheed teach us phonics that really helps us with the reading. Favorite books are Smurfs and Magic Treehouse.

We love reading. We stretch the words to make sounds and we have to read slowly to sound out the words. We use Bookshelf and Epic.

Right now we are learning to write “how to” books. We know that you have to add to your writing and your pictures. You have to add steps. After you are finished you have to take a picture of it for SeeSaw. We really love the weekend news because you get to write about what you did on the weekend.

Jason has been doing microscope science at home with help from his dad. Nirvaan has been reading National Geographic Kids Ultimate Weird but True book. The book is about cool science facts. Nirvaan also did a bouncy egg experiment. In Mrs. Bayles class we learned about Allosaurus and other creatures that use their bodies like the sugar gliders, puffer fish and the Hawiaan Pom Pom Crab. We also learned about how elephants defend themselves and care for their young.

Co-Teachers: Mrs. McCullough & Mrs. Stanford

by Aarini

Mrs. McCullough comes in after the story in the morning meeting and teaches us phonics. Sometimes she puts a video on for a co-teacher that teaches us phonics.

Sometimes in math Mrs. Bayles sends us to a break-out room with Mrs. Stanford. Sometimes we go Dreambox. When we tell her something is wrong in Dreambox, she will tell us what to do. If we are with Mrs. Bayles, we are doing some different math on the screen.
