Harvest Full Moon

Hi Everyone,
Wow!  What a great week.  I am getting to know all of your children and what can I say, they are amazing!  We are having a great time building our learning community.  We have dived into our curriculum and are learning a lot including science, math, reading, and so much more.  Don't forget to check the blog daily for homework due every day.  Thank you!

Headphones/Earbuds Needed
Please send your child in with a pair of headphones or earbuds that plug into a computer.  We will be using technology all year and they will need a pair to use at school that can live at school.  If you have extras or would like to send an extra pair in for a few students who don't have them, that would be deeply appreciated.

First Week Success!

Hi Everyone,
We had a great first week!  I have absolutely loved getting to know your child and also getting to see my former students too. We are having fun, we are learning, and we are creating a compassionate learning environment. This week students took the Beginning of the Year math assessment and will start math on Monday, We also started the first 20 days of reading and did some creative writing in their writing journals!  We played a ton and enjoyed morning meeting activities.

Students also worked on recording and discussing their hopes and dreams for their classroom, teachers, self, and school.  They worked in small groups and discussed their ideas.  We gathered those ideas on the board, found common themes and used the ideas to come up with a class mission!  I am so impressed with their thoughts and ideas.  They are very insightful and I know this is going to be a very special year filled with growth and wonder.

Our Class Mission:

Ready, Set, Go!
