Word Works-sort 29-(ig,eg,ag,ug)

Reading-Readers are problem solvers. We are learning strategies for unknown words, making predictions, making sure it makes sense, getting our mouth ready, using the pictures, skipping it and reading on, go back and read it again, break it into chunks and sound it out. We are using sticky notes for unknown words. We are increasing our vocabulary.

Writing-small moments, we are using story language (one day... then.. after that..), using visual details, putting space between words and do the best we can without giving up. We are using our Stamina!!!

Teacher Work Day


10-23-15-Walker/no encore


We need water bottles for the class. The children use their money to buy water. This is helpful when kids forget to bring in a water bottle and are thirsty.

We need items for our Treasure chest. You can send in new or gently used items.


Thanks for everyone attending your scheduled conference. I only have 7 more to go. I am about to do my happy dance!!
