Mrs. G's Classroom News

World Language is being offered to all students at Hornung starting next week. We will have our first experience with our new Spanish teacher on Monday. We are looking forward to it! I will be joining students in this class and will learn right along with them! We will have Spanish class every fourth day.
Our school had our first lock-down drill on Thursday. Everyone did fantastic! The kids know what to do if there was an emergency. Their cooperation really made the experience a positive one.
Please remember to visit my webpage at http://mrsgiannandrea3.weebly.com for calendar events and other curriculum items. Also, if you follow me on twitter @mrsg3rd you will get updated information during the school day!
I have been reading "The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane" as a mentor text and the kids love this book! We have started to really get to know the main character. Strategies I have demonstrated using this book this week have been: what to do if we get confused in a particular part of a story, what to do if we come across a word we can not pronounce and what to do if we come across a word we don't know the meaning. Ask your child what my all time favorite reading strategy is. They should know it is to RE-READ!!!
