Handwriting, Riddles, and Weekend Stories!
Howdy Friends! Our Monday started with "catch up" day on work board... finishing all the jobs we were unable to complete during previous mornings. Many students are able to complete a day's worth of work board jobs, but many meet in reading groups, that's why we have "catch up" day! And we don't want to miss ONE THING when it comes to work board! We reviewed our doubles facts and wrote our clever doubles riddles! What would happen if you put 3 heart balloons into the magic pot? You can find out when you come read our Book Of Riddles on Thursday night... Open House! PTO and many local business and civics groups are treating every SES family to dinner starting at 5:00, right here at school! After a tasty dinner, you can visit classrooms and see what we've been up to for the last couple of weeks! Hope to see you!
In writing workshop we began by reviewing what makes a good writer... what do good writers do? We started with handwriting practice, and stressed how important it is to make capital letters TALL!!! Remembering when to use a capital letter is also important! Sitting like a writer, using your helping hand, and doing your best... very important! Next, it was on to weekend stories (personal narratives) and writing about our weekend... whether it was wild and crazy, or slow and relaxing! Every writer has a story to tell, and that's what writers workshop is all about! See y'all tomorrow friends... PE, sneakers please.
