Literacy Centers & Studio in the School

Happy February families! This month, we have started two new things-literacy centers with guided reading and studio in the school (which is an art program).

During literacy centers, students work in small groups to improve their literacy skills ranging from phonics work, writing, listening and guided reading, which is when they work with either Ms. Darrell or I on reading and Ms. Rebecca also works with students on vocabulary!

Last Friday, our resident artist Ms. Monika came in to teach the students about how artists can use different lines to create art. They looked at a variety of art and talked about the lines-how they were spiky, zig zag, fat, skinny, dark and light. Then, they created their own art work using a variety of lines.
