Newsletter for the Week of Dec. 4th

On another note, I have one of the sweetest classes.  On Friday, when a student moved his desk the toolbox with all of the school supplies fell onto the floor.  Everyone went to help him clean up the spill!  So sweet!!

Readers Infer

Looking for some GREAT books on making inferences!  These are some of the books I shared with my class last week.  Students have learned that they use what they already know and the clues in the book (text or illustrations) to come to a conclusion.

We had a lot of fun with the books below!!

They practiced responding in their Readers' Notebooks.

Gymnastics at the YMCA

We spent Friday afternoon at the Y!  Students did gymnastics and had a blast.  A BIG thank you to Mrs. R for setting this up for us.

All About Spiders

We spent the week learning more about spiders.  We focused on Tarantulas and Black Widows.  Students created a two page investigation where we worked with informational text features.

Once completed, they weaved a web and made their very own 3D spider!
