Academic Showcase

Hi Everyone,

I am so excited for you to see our students works of art this Friday! They are fantastic and have all worked very hard.

I decided to have the kids present their projects to the class on Thursday, before the showcase on Friday. It will give them practice as to what to say on Friday. It will also be nice for the students to show their classmates what they have made.

The expository essay’s are complete and ready for display as well. WOO HOO!

Excited to see many of you this Friday at the showcase at 1:15!

Powerful Readers

There is just something so powerful when a classroom of 10-11 year old children beg and plead to have more independent reading time each day. The room is never as quiet as it is during independent reading time. Reading in 208 is something we all cherish and treasure. I am so proud of each student this year as I watch them grow into life-long readers. I hope they take the joy of reading they show in this classroom into their future classrooms and at home!

Two books that really sparked my interest and taught me a lot about the importance of elementary reading are below. I highly advise you check them out!

Please also see the list of books I have brought into the classroom that our children absolutely love. Not every student has had the opportunity to read each one so check them out at the library 🙂

Academic Showcase

Hi Everyone,

The academic showcase will take place Friday, May 15th at 1:15. Please make sure that students at home projects have been started! If students are doing something that requires technology, they will have an iPad to display their project. Please make sure that however they decide to present, it will be accessible through an iPad. Continue working hard and please make sure to email me with any questions!
