A Peek at our Week
During writer's workshop we want to spend all of our time writing, writing, writing, so we have been saying "when you think you're done, you've just begun!" Sometimes, though, "problems" come up that keep us from writing. Fortunately, "Problem-Solving Paul" came by on Wednesday to help us solve some "problems" we might have during writer's workshop. Paul helped us figure out where to get extra paper, what to do if our pencil isn't working, or what happens when we finish a story and are ready to start a new piece. I am truly amazed at what our writers have done in only one week!
3 Ways to Read a Book
As our letter, sound, and work knowledge grows throughout the year we will focus more on reading the words. In the meantime, I encourage you to have your child tell the story by "reading" the pictures in a book at home or retelling a familiar story if they are not yet reading words. This skill will help us transition into "read to self" or independent reading time which we hope to start as early as next week!
Building our Shared Vision
September 23 - Mrs. Hessert will be out of the classroom after lunch time. If you have any last-minute changes in dismissal, please be sure to call the office!
September 30 - Open House 6:30PM Join us as we share our hard work from our first few weeks in Kindergarten
This week I will be sending home Scholastic Book Orders. While book orders are optional, they are a fun and inexpensive way to add to your home library. Ordering books through Scholastic also helps our classroom library earn more books throughout the year! You can send your order form and check to school or order books online. Please keep your eye out for order forms in Pirate Folders later this week.
