Publishing our Stories!

Hello families! I hope everyone had a restful Columbus Day weekend! I was out yesterday because this weekend, I ran the Chicago Marathon!
It was my third marathon but my first ever in Chicago!

Back to the classroom...

We are finishing up our first units and will be starting new units next week! In reading, we are continuing to work on reading with others and sharing our thoughts. Today, we talked about how readers can talk about how they feel when they read. At home, talk about how stories make you feel to model the language for your child.

In writing, we have been working on editing and publishing our stories. We have been going back to stories we've written and making them better by adding details, labels and color.

In math, each day we have been exploring a shape and working on different shape related problems--
Can you fill a circle with squares?
What shapes can you use to fill a triangle?
