We had a wonderful first week of school! Reading and writing workshops have been launched with some fun and interactive lessons. Ask your child about Growth Mindset and strategies for staying focused and motivated during independent writing:) Students also practiced cooperative group and problem solving strategies as they planned to create a new civilization on a far away planet. Together we began the process of getting to know each other with our Community Circle. 

 

Next week, students will continue learning routines and building reading and writing stamina in our workshops. We will kick off social studies with our geography unit. The main goal of this unit is to teach students how to read and analyze any map they come across in textbooks and nonfiction texts. 

 

I hope to see you all at Back To School Night on Thursday.

I am excited to meet each and everyone of  my new students on Monday. I have an exciting week planned. We will spend time launching our reading and writing workshops and getting to know each other. 

 

Please begin gathering family pictures, stickers, magazine cut outs and anything else you may want to use to decorate the cover of your new writing notebook. I love beginning the year personalizing our notebooks. These pictures will be due Friday, August 18.

 

I would also like you to bring in a printed picture of the cover of your favorite book. So, think about a book that you have read or someone has read to you that made an impact on your life. Maybe you learned something important about yourself or the world. Or maybe you just really loved the characters. The book could be your favorite for any reason, but spend some time thinking about it. Then find an image online of the cover and print it out. Color or black and white, it doesn't matter. Bring the picture in on Friday, August 18th as well.  

 

Have a great last weekend of summer! See you Monday!
