Thank you so much to all of you that attended our Reading Restaurant! We had a great time serving some awesome books. I hope you enjoyed the night and your kids are excited about the books they chose! I discovered that I'm not cut out to be a waitress...so I'm going to stick to teaching! :)
Here's a few pictures from the night!
Wow...waitressing is hard work!
Thank you so much to LEAF for funding this event!!

Last Friday we participated in another video conference! This time we created a class snowman. Then, we wrote a description of our snowman. We emailed our writing to a partner class at Huggins Elementary. Their job was to read our directions to see if they could create our snowman. Our partner class did the same thing...we had to create their snowman just by reading their directions. It was so fun! When we met during the video conference we shared our snowmen to see if we followed the directions correctly. We did a pretty good job! Ask your child about this fun activity!
Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great winter break. We started our new year off with our New Year's resolutions...and boy did they do a great job! I was very impressed with their resolutions. This is a group of sweet and thoughtful kids!
The class was also very excited to be back at stations. We have some new technology at stations this week.
We now have iPods at the listen to reading station!
They can listen to the story on the iPod and then complete a comprehension activity.
We also have the iPads at the writing station!
They are making postcards using the Postcards app.
We also have iTouches at the word work station!
They are using some fun apps to practice phonics and language skills.
Reading to someone and Successmaker on the laptops are still favorites during station time!
