In writing we are focusing on adding details to our writing. We will begin to learn about our 5 senses and how they can help us to add details  to our writing.

Have a great week!


PJ Day

Hi I had some inquiries about PJ day. We set a goal at the beginning of the week. When we reach 300 points on Classdojo we will have a pj day. We are at 250 now so will most likely hit the goal tomorrow or Monday. Once we hit the goal we will set a date.

Wednesday March 7th

Sorry for the late blog post. We had an awesome PD session on teaching reading workshop in the classroom. Lots of new and exciting ideas to try out!

New words: made             him               would                 could               about

Teach Your Monster to Read: Last week I introduced the children to a new reading site. In the beginning it works with sounds, builds up to working with blends, cvc words and then reading passages. The link is

There was lots of interest to play at home!

The only thing is that it is free on laptops and desktops but there is a charge for the app for ipads.

Jellybean contest: there is a jellybean contest going on for Easter Seals. Students can bring in a quarter for each guess. Guesses can be made on Music Days.


Book Fair

With Parent Teacher Interviews we have the book fair at our school. Tomorrow students will get a chance to visit the book fair. They will then be able to purchase books on Thursday. As always I have spoken to the children and told them that not everyone will be able to get a book. We talked about how people can get books from many different places but it is still ok to go and get ideas of what they might like to read.

Reminder that tomorrow is also Pink Shirt Day.

Report Cards

Hi, I will be sending report cards home today. For children who have two homes I will send one today to the house they are going to today. The other will be placed in the office for the other parent to pick up.
