Morning Meeting

During Morning Meeting this month, we introduced our new friends, Akhil and Anastasia! Akhil and Anastasia are new, and we wanted to introduce them to YOU! Morning Meeting begins with the greeting. My favorite is 1, 2, 3, 4… where a student does their best dance move while we say good morning to them. It’s a fun way to start our day! Right now, the VIP (Very Important Person) is sharing a bit of their culture or a family tradition by bringing in an artifact a.k.a. something from home. Finally, we do an applause for the VIP like Roller coaster. Morning Meeting is really "greeting" all the fun! ~Katie


Reading has a strong connection to morning meeting through our first theme. During Theme 1: Common Ground we read fiction and nonfiction pieces about wide variety of people. We also practiced many helpful strategies. Two key strategies are determining the most important information, and using text evidence to make inferences.

Unit 3 is complete! In Mrs. Scherr’s math class we love to measure, especially when it is part of a relay. We’ll run “miles for measuring!” We’ve studied angles, polygons, tessellations, lines and line segments. We also enjoy standing on our chairs when we finish challenging problems. “Mrs. Scherr really makes math fun!” Rebecca says enthusiastically. ~Ben
