What's Going On?

March 5, 2013

PASS is around the corner!

I am extremely impressed with our students desire and determination to become better writers. We have had several weeks of our extra writing instruction on Fridays. In class we have worked hard on creating pieces that address and stay on topic. We have also focused on using a variety of sentences, punctuation, and capitalization. As a whole, this group of students does a FANTASTIC job at hooking their readers.

The writing portion of PASS is Tuesday and Wednesday (March 19 & 20).

Reading Buddies

What a fun learning experience! Each Friday, we meet with Ms. Bunchman's first grade readers to share our knowledge. Your child prepares a "lesson plan" each week to use while working with their buddy. I have been so impressed with their mature attitude toward this task. Talk with your child about this wonderful learning experience. They never cease to amaze me. Thank you for always sending me your BEST!

We have ran out of many items. if you Re willing or able to send in any of the below items, they will be greatly appreciated.Class wish list: pencils, notebook paper, colored pencils, and hand-held pencil sharpeners.
