Writer's Workshop

Opinion Writing:


Terrah, "I'm writing about my favorite movie."

Gunner, "I'm writing about, 'I like ice cream.'"

Ava, "Opinion writing is when someone doesn't like something and someone else does like it."

Maddy, "I'm writing about 'I like my family' and opinion writing is like someone likes a salad and someone doesn't, but that is okay."

Ryan, "Yeah, cause some people don't like chicken and some people do like chicken."

Braylon B., "Opinion writing means it's just their choice and that's okay."

Natalee, "Opinion writing is like if someone likes tomato soup and someone doesn't like it."

Breah, "I'm writing, 'I like to play.'"

Kayla, "I'm writing about how I love my brother."

Addison, "I'm writing about my favorite movie."

Lilly Grace, "My book is about, 'I l Really Like Sleeping.'"

Esther, "I'm writing about my favorite cake."

Math Stories

This week the children practiced writing their own math word problems using addition and subtraction.

Standard CC.K.MP4:

Model with mathematics. Mathematically proficient students can apply the mathematics they know to solve problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace. In early grades, this might be as simple as writing an addition equation to describe a situation.

Say "CHEESE!"

Our K2 Class will take a special class picture together on Monday, May 9th. Please dress your child in Patriot colors: red, white and/or blue. Several ideas include a nice polo shirt with khaki or a cute summer dress with patriot colors. We are trying to capture every last minute together!
