Awesome Authors!

We have been working so hard on writing this year. The students are so excited about writing! We love to read what everyone is writing so much that we wanted to share it with you! We will be choosing one story each week to share with you. Enjoy!!

This week's Awesome Author: Quentin
On a calm, warm, sunny day in March, we were lining up for recess. I had lots of joy in myself. "Finally." I whispered. I felt like I was gonna explode.
Then we were walking very quietly with hugs and bubbles on in the hallway.
We finally got outside. We all ran wildly to the playground. We almost ran over Mrs. Wagner. "Let's play tag." I said.
What an amazing story Quentin! Great job!

Reading!

Is your child reading chapter books at home? I know I have sent home chapter books with many students in their book bags. This is so exciting! The kids have made amazing progress in reading this year. I am so proud of everyone! Please click the link below to view a page that the kids can print out at home to work on summarizing after they read their chapter books. I will be sending this page home in their book bags as well. Summarizing and reflecting on their reading is a very important concept for them to work on. Please help them with this at home.

Thank you so much for your support and help with reading this year. I am so happy that the kids are remembering to bring their book bags back every day for our reading groups! Great Job!
