What a week in first grade! We celebrated two birthdays which always makes for exciting days! On birthdays, we spend our writing time interviewing the birthday student and writing a page for their birthday books! I’m hoping to get the books out within a week of your child’s birthday.
In reading we started our Guided Reading groups! We are already working hard using the strategies we are learning and applying them to our reading. In our reading group we read new books, re-read old books, practice sight words, and more to become better readers!
We had an impromptu lesson on kindness on Friday afternoon! We read Kindness is Cooler, Mrs. Ruler about acts of kindness and how "a slice of nice makes a mile of smiles". Then we wrote a letter to a classmate with one way that they made us smile! It was a great way to spread kindness and build our classroom community.
