New Student?

Our class had a special new student in class today. Her name? Atenea Callejas! :-)
The students were so surprised when Atenea joined them on the carpet for class. She was so polite and made sure to great each one of the them with a sweet, slobbery kiss or a soft touch from her cold, wet nose. Throughout the day she worked with the students as they used their writing skills to try and persuade me to bring Atenea another day, practiced their capitalization and punctuation, and rotated through their math stations. Some of the students even got to read a book to Atenea as she lounged around on the carpet during Reader's Workshop. Ask your child to tell you all about our exciting day with our furry, four-legged new student!

Busy Days!

It is hard to believe that there are only 8 more days left in the school year! We have been busy with all kinds of activities and the next few days will be equally exciting. Today the students participated in Safety Day where they were able to meet police officers, life guards, fire fighters, animal specialists, health professionals, and some special canine visitors (like Nala, the camera shy pup) who taught them all about the many ways to stay safe. Ask your child to tell you some of the important information they learned!

Yummy OJ!

This week our class continued to review Functional Writing. On Monday, we learned all about "How to Make Orange Juice". The students were so excited to learn about the process and have the chance to squeeze their own juice. It was a bit messy, but wonderfully delicious and completely worth it! Why not pick up some oranges on your way home tonight? Then, you can let your child show off their juice making expertise and help them practice the steps of functional writing!
