The hayride on Monday was a blast! The kids loved it, and I'm glad they could experience it. We got to see animals, tour the pumpkin patch and pick out a pumpkin for our room.
Now that Daily 5 is launched and DRAs are complete, we started guided reading groups. One of my favorite things about first grade is the amount of growth the students make from the beginning of the year to the end, especially in reading. With my journalism background, I have a love for all things grammar and copy editing :) I shared that passion this week, and we talked about punctuation and practiced using the four types of sentences in our writing. We read Mo Willems books, which provide great examples of all four.
Our Leader in Me focus the last two weeks was Habit 3: Put First Things First. The students are truly understanding the meaning of this habit. We discussed class rules and our responsibilities of being leaders in our room, in the school and at home.
Our Fall Party is next Friday, October 20 at 11:45. This is a half day, so if you join us, you can take your child home after the party.
