Highlights from Week 14: Dec. 7-Dec. 11
Wow, we have so many children using IXL at home! Keep up the good work. It was another busy week, with so much excitement for our Hour of Code on Friday. It was a great experience, and a BIG thank you to our parent volunteers who helped make it such a success.
In reading this week, many students changed groups, and we continued our work with blends. The students had fun engaging with reading in many different ways, as we opened all of our Daily 5 reading stations. We completed chapter 4 in math, and are ready to begin a new challenge with chapter 5.
Jack and Maia were great Top Dogs! They have passed the responsibilities on to Luke this week. He will do great!
Check out our classroom updates, and as always, be sure to contact me with any questions. Hope you're enjoying some family time this weekend.
IXL: We've Completed 2,000 Math Problems!
Professional Devleopment Days, November 21 and 22
From these workshops, I have found some great new read alouds to share after the break. We started a new art project, inspired by the story, Mirette on the Highwire. I look forward to also using plickers as a new way for me to track student progress. I am grateful for this opportunity to grow as an educator.
We are ready for volunteers to join us during our reading block from 9:50-11:30 daily. You can come once, weekly, or monthly, whatever is best for you. Follow the link below to sign up for a time that best fits your needs.
During this time, you can expect to support students at their seats, as they're working independently. On some days, there might also be classroom materials to prep (copies, cutting, filing and organizing)
