Wow, where did the month go? We have been very busy in room 215. Take a look at what we have done throughout the month!

Here are a few pictures of some math games that we have played!

We love reading poetry! Students are introduced to a new poem every Monday. Throughout the week we will read and or sing our new poem. We look for sight words, rhyming words, and our hunks and chunks. On Fridays we have "Open Mic Friday"! Students sign up to sing/read the poem using a karaoke machine. Students LOVE reading using a microphone! Students also receive a copy of the poem to put in their poetry binders on Friday. Students have time to find and highlight their sight words in the poem. After highlighting sight words students read their poems with their classmates.

 Every other Friday we meet with our 4th grade reading buddies. Last week we worked hard on scarecrows. Students also completed a profile based off of their scarecrows! We always have a great time meeting with our fourth grade friends!

October is fire safety month! We spent a week talking about fire safety. Mr. Peng, a Miami Township firefighter also came in to talk to our class about the importance of fire safety. Thank you Mr. Peng!
We completed our pattern book unit with a writers celebration! Students were very proud to share their books with their classmates.
