This week we’ve began working on 2 - Dimensional shapes.  We are learning the characteristics of each.


We are in the last 5 day launching phase of Daily 5.  The children are doing a great job grasping the expectations of the Daily 5 (Read to Self, Work on Writing, Listen to Reading, Read to Others, and Word Work).  They are learning C.A.F.E. strategies (Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency, and Extending Vocabulary) in order to become more independent in their reading and to grow as readers.  I am starting to see some decent progress, which is always a blessing for a teacher to see.


We are working on writing non-fiction/informational text.

Word Work:

Spelling words, sight word practice, and contined work with parts of speech (specifically Proper and Plural Nouns) 

Things for Parents to Know:

  • My email address is if you need to contact me, or you can download the Remind App on your cell phone and type in the code 2bdc8f .  This joins you to my class and you will receive all messages I send out, as well as be able to reply without everyone seeing your response.  I prefer to use Remind since it allows us to text back and forth for immediate communication.
