Well the school year is off to a great start. We have begun our chapter book clubs. Every student is reading an appropriate leveled chapter book that will help challenge them as developing readers.
Our writing is really beginning to take on more organization and purpose. Students loved receiving their very own pumpkin to write about. We have also been learing about the parts of speech.
In math we have concluded the first unit and are well into the second unit. Students spend time each day working independently on their chromebook becoming introduced to the day's lesson. Then the class spends time together gong over the lesson before they pair off with their odd or even buddy to work to complete the problems in the lesson.
The other day we also finished the wonderfuil Cricket in Times Square. The children loved this interactive read aloud that was accompanied with lots of opera music and other songs played on violins. I am currenly looking for a guest violinist to visit the classroom.
