October Reading

We were so proud of all the students that read 20 nights during the month of October!  We had 278 complete the Owl Reading chart for October!! 

Monster Match: Using art to improve writing

Our third graders met every week during the month of October to work on their Monster Match Project.  The students drew a picture of a monster, and then they had to write a descriptive paper describing how to draw their monster.  Then we exchanged papers with another class, and the students drew another student's monster after reading that student's descriptive paper.  The final week of October we all met together to compare our monsters.  The students had a lot of fun, and they learned how important descriptive words are in their writing!

Nugget and Fang: Friends Forever or Snack Time

This week our first graders have enjoyed reading about Nugget and Fang.  It is a story about friendship between two unlikely friends...a shark and a minnow.  The students had a great time reading this book and then coloring a bookmark that went with the book!
