I sent home a list of words today with some of the words highlighted. These are the words that your son or daughter misspelled. I will be working on these words with the students throughout the year, but I would appreciate you also working on them.


We organized our writing notebooks today during writing. We sectioned them off into brainstorming, resources, and final writing.

We worked on breaking apart the number 4 today. You will see some of these problems on the students’ math homework that was sent home. Students are to break apart the number 4 into 3 +1, 1+3, and 2 +2. I met with partner groups to give them some extra practice. One student broke apart 4 counters and the other student wrote the numbers to match the partners (we are calling the groups partners).

We had our last day of read to self challenge. The students made it to 16:08! Awesome job! I forgot to take picture of our king and queen, but it was Grace and Ty. Way to go!


While I listened to students read, the class worked in 4 different literacy stations. These included a craftivity from our story Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse, writing station, read to self, and ipads.
