Language Workshop

Our book this week was Peanut Butter and Cupcake by Terry Border. This sweet story is about how Peanut Butter is on the search for a friend. He has a hard time finding a friend. But, the problem is solved when Peanut Butter finally runs into someone (Jelly) who is looking for a friend, too.

This book is the first book in our Language Workshop Unit 2: Problem Solving

Our essential question for the unit: What makes someone a problem solver?

Check out some of the characters from the story...

Reading Workshop

This week we focused on the characteristics of a fiction book. We brainstormed all the ways fiction books are alike. We noticed that fiction books have have characters, settings, problem/solutions, and illustrations.

Math Workshop

Shapes! Shapes! and more Shapes! We discusses the attributes of each shape.

Interactive Writing

Our interactive writing is a great way to build foundational reading and writing skills for emergent readers/writers. It supports students as they are learning concepts about print and kindergarten sight words.

We have been learning about habitats this week! Students chose an animal, researched it's habitat and created a small habitat using natural and craft items. They had so much fun!

Ask your child to tell you about his/her animal and the habitat.

THANK YOU for all the items you sent in for our habitats!


We completed our first round of conferences on Thursday. It was so wonderful celebrating all the learning we have done this year. Thank you for your continued support at home!
