I hope you enjoyed your weekend. In response to our morning question children reported that weekend festivities were either "awesome" or " pretty good" so they were happy. I am always encouraging students to capture ideas for Writers Workshop. Tomorrow I will make a big deal about "noticing notebooks" which should be used to write those ideas down. Please ask about them and encourage your children to keep them close at hand.
Picture Day- We'll be smiling for our school photos tomorrow. Picture forms went home last week and should be returned with your orders in the morning.
Mystery Reader- Here is the link for our Mystery Reader sign up. This is a perfect Friday afternoon surprise and the children just love our visitors. Parents, grandparents, siblings, and special friends are welcome. Let me know if you have questions.
Brynn and Brady- Thanks to Brynn for surprising her classmates by introducing her newest pet, Brady the snapping turtle. I used this as an opportunity to begin our first shared narrative writing experience. Mr. Lee and Dr. Unobskey just happened to enter our classroom at the height of the excitement. It was fun to share our writing leads and different perspectives on the same experience. What an engaging way to begin our first stories!
Conferences- It was a pleasure to see you at our Curriculum Night and I look forward to our first conferences in the coming weeks. Here is the link to the sign up sheet. Please consider this your confirmation. If you did not have an opportunity to sign up please do so at your earliest convenience.
Have a great week!
