Students worked in groups on analogies in Writer's Workshop. Children wrote opinions about restaurants, ice cream stores, movies, games and sports. Those that wrote on the same topic, worked in groups and organized their analogies.
They made beautiful cover and title pages for their collections.

Today we took a walking field trip to see the movie The Polar Express at Chet Creek Church next door from our school. When we returned, we had Matt and Jami Michaud waiting for us with hot chocolate and snowman cookies from Starbucks. Thank you to the Michaud family for the wonderful refreshments after the movie!!

Dear Lunch Lady,

giving me a spoon and coming to help me
when I need help.
Thank you for everything.
You are the best,
During the Skills Block segment of Math, students learned the game of "Roll 3 for 20 or Bust". The purpose of this game is to get to 20 or as close to the number 20 as possible. They roll 3 die (each color is specific to a number) - blue (0-5), green (2-7), and red (4-9). Then they add the sum of the 3 dice and decide if they want to hold or roll again (one die). If they chose to roll again, they choose the color. This game builds computational fluency and enhances estimating skills.
