Today in Writers' Workshop we talked about what to do when we may run into problems as a writer. We discussed problems like sharpening pencils, finding paper, and getting writing ideas! We learned about " new" tools we could use when we may be stuck and practiced them! Wow- we got a lot of writing done today!
What an amazing time this evening at Open House! It was so nice to meet you and your extended family!!! What a great way to start off the school year! Also, a big "round of applause" for all the moms, dads, and grandparents for drawing a picture for your child's writing folder! For anyone who was unable to attend I will send home a Power Point Packet with information. Also, check out the link below of Student Slideshow.
Today we explored flowers and seeds in a garden. The class read a story- Planting a Rainbow- had a discussion about colors, seeds, and other items we could grow. We worked on our fine motor by cutting flowers and pasting them to creat a collage! Then we talked about our harvest lunch next week and toured our JMS Garden!
This past Friday the entire school had a chance to attend a music concert on the Morris Green! They sang songs, danced with friends, and even had the chance to enjoy some ice cold fruit pops! Overall, it was a perfect way to celebrate a new school year!
