We have been having a wonderful start to the school year. It has been filled with many fun activities, lessons, and presentations. Some highlights thus far:
- A visit from Matt Tavares the children's author and illustrator - Terrapin Team meeting, including Go Noodle and fun dancing - Our first Read and Relax with lots of reading and snacking! - We began our Global Read Aloud book - Pax - We started learning about reading comprehension strategies and how we can be "metacognitive" while reading - We wrote couplets as our first style of poetry - We started creative writing - We've successfully completed multiple evacuation drills - We had a fun read aloud with our new Reading Curriculum Specialist, Stephanie Nephew - We have been reading aloud the novel Holes every day and learning about the misfortune of main character, Stanley Yelnats - And we learned all about geography and map skills so we could start our own island projects!
This just scratches the surface of all the learning we are doing in B025! Much more to come!
