Wonderful Writers!

Everyone has been working so hard in writing! We have been writing small moment stories and fixing them up. Last week we chose our best small moment story and published a real author!

Everyone had the opportunity to meet with their writing partner to get ideas about how to add to their story or fix it up.

We had a publishing party to celebrate the awesome writing. Everyone read aloud parts of their published story. The stories were added to our class library so everyone can enjoy!

Thank you parents!  I really appreciate you taking the time to check our class blog and sign up for a conference time.  I look forward to meeting with each of you. 

I also want to thank you for your generous donations for our grade level basket for the Fall Festival.  We really appreciate your support!  I hope to see you all at the  Fall Festival on Friday!

Thank you!

Parent Conferences

It is almost time for our first report cards to go home!  Hard to believe!  I would like to set up a time to conference with every parent to go over the report card and any other testing information we have completed so far this year.  Parent conferences are scheduled for Thursday, November 1st and Friday, November 2nd.  (These are also early release days.  Dismissal time is 11:30.) Please click the link below to go to a google doc and sign up for a conference time that works for you. You will need to type your child's name in the day/time slot that works best for you.  Please do not sign up for a time in the gray areas. (I am taking a break during those times to eat!) 

I look forward to meeting with each of you!

This class loves to tweet! We have been tweeting every week on our bulletin board by the classroom. This week we took it a step further and used our Activexpressions to "tweet" in our morning message. This was a big hit! I loved reading their tweets!
