A Toast to Young Authors!
Welcome to Room 138 inside the "Brick" at Queen Anne Elementary! First Grade is such an incredibly exciting year and I am so looking forward to the days and months ahead. So here we go and I hope you will check in often as we work together towards the best "first grade year" ever!
Our FIRST visit with our McClure Reading Buddies - they will be back this Friday!
Our Favorite Parts of Our 2nd Read-A-Loud - Pippi Longstocking
We our building our stamina as readers and writers. Every morning we get out our book boxes and read to self. Right now our best is 14 minutes. After reading we come together and make a choice about what to do next. Some of us listen to reading, some of us do word work and some of us have the stamina to continue reading even longer.
The best way to get to know each other is to share stories. Our writer's workshop started on the first day of school and our yellow folders are beginning to bulge with stories about our lives.
