Our Class Moose

If you give a moose a STUDENT he'll more than likely HAVE A BLAST!!

Mystery Reader

The kids get so excited the week of a mystery reader. Each day is filled with excitement as they realize they are "in" or "out" of the running for the reader to be their mom or dad.

Library 2X2

Students voted on their favorite book for the Texas 2X2 and celebrated with a little party!

Elf on the "Classroom" Shelf!

"Elfy" has had a blast the last two weeks with the kiddos! He will be missed.

Readers Workshop

Readers workshop is a chance for students to practice the skill taught in the mini-lesson. On this day, students were practicing questioning in their books and recording in their notebooks.

Math

Graphing is a new favorite for the kids. They are constantly asking for graphing things!

Math

Stations are time where students practice their working number combinations!

Math

Math talk is a 5-10 spiral review talk. On this day we reviewed tally marks with popsicle sticks. "One, two, three, four, shut the door"

Writers Celebration

Students shared their "how-to" writing with others. Once they shared their writing, students wrote a thank you note.

Word Work

We often practice our word study words with letter tiles. Students first sort their tiles into ABC order and then I orally call out a word. We create word ladders as students change the beginning, middle, or ending letter to create a new word. "I want "big" to turn to "beg", what do you have to change?"
