Happy Friday to all of you! Here's a look at our week:
On Tuesday night we had Curriculum Night. This is when parents come to hear all about first grade. We had a good turnout and that was great. Our students wrote letters to their parents and the parents wrote back to them (using an adorable template we got from Lucky to Be in First). The parents were all very happy to have a letter from their sweetie pies.
"Dear Mom and Dad, I love first grade. I like my teacher. I like my classroom. I like specials."
This week we worked on Story Elements during reading. They were able to quickly understand this concept. We had a lot of practice!
Sarah got this fun Story Elements puzzle from a previous co-worker. The students talk about the book they read by putting the pieces of the puzzle back together. We have them keep this in their Daily 5 book bins to use throughout the year.
This week we also launched Work on Writing. Our kiddos were super excited about it and it went smoothly. Next week we start Read to Someone.
We were busy, busy, busy conducting running records this week! We are using a program on our iPads to do this so we are learning as we go. As you know, running records are very time consuming!
Last week we had a giveaway for our newest product,
Pumpkins, Apples, and Halloween Oh My! And the winner is...
