Happy New Year!!!!!
We are continuing to build stamina as readers during independent reading. Please be certain that your growing reader continues to read at home. The only way to improve is to read more. We had library checkout on Monday. So be certain to check in on your reader and see what he or she is reading. Don't forget to show yourself as a reader at home.
We are concluding our informational units in reading and writing. Informational writings are due on Friday.
We spent quite a bit of time reflecting and sharing what it means to be a respectful community member. This was not only appropriate to talk about towards others, but also towards property in our school. We have BRAND NEW furniture, and we love it!! We discussed how important it is to take care of each other and our things to make everyone feel safe, valued, and loved. Please continue these conversations at home so that we can preserve our happy attitudes and new furniture.
