Vicki will be making homemade caramel rolls and we will begin our new book study on Fostering Resilient Learners. You have all been invited to participate in the book study on Google Classroom ~ see your email to join. If you did not get an email invitation, let me know. This will be my first time using Google Classroom ~ we will learn together! Please bring your book to the late start! The discussion questions for Wednesday are posted in Google Classroom. You do not need to "formally" answer them ~ they will be used to engage your groups in discussion on Wednesday.

Thanks to Jami Frize for sharing the video below! A dyslexic child shouldn’t be judged or left behind. This video shows what they’re experiencing when they read, try to watch and you’ll realize the struggle they have to deal with. Let’s understand the dyslexic ones, let’s help them conquer these difficulties: what they need is our support!

Great Job to Mrs. Fruetel and her Team on their Hard Work Last Week!
