We are now 20 days into our school year and we are having a blast in room 215! We have adjusted to a full day of school very nicely. We have made new friends, experienced (and are loving) going to specials each day and we have even conquered our fear of eating lunch at school!
We have been very busy learning our classroom routines and expectations. We have also shown what it looks and sounds like to read independently, explored Math tools, learned a variety of new Math games, and so much more!
Here are a few photos I have taken throughout the last four weeks:
Creating classroom rules:
Respect our Environment
We made spacers to help us remember to add spaces between our words!
To launch writing workshop I read the story "Library Mouse". After reading the story I asked the class if they would like to meet an author. Of course they replied with a big "YES!!". I then invited each student to Meet the Author. At the bottom of the box was a mirror. As each child looked into the box they saw themselves. They quickly realized that they were now authors!
