Once again, we have had several requests for the above "Letter Combinations" chart. We alternate this chart with the below "Blends" chart every day during Skills Block. Students chant it as "ay, ey, ai See kids play, etc." They see these letter combinations in their reading and use them in their writing. These two charts are also kept in easy eye-sight for students to refer to as needed. Smaller charts are also put into their writing folders and reading bins earlier in the year to use as reference tools and chant during partner reading.

What is more exciting than a field trip to a six year old? Our first field trip this year was to the IMAX Theater to see the Great Barrier Reef: An IMAX 3D Experience. Students grabbed their snorkel gear and skillfully mastered a trip through the awesome and bizarre living world of the reef. They experienced the 3D movie with the focus on preserving and protecting the habitat of giant mantas, sea turtles, sharks and Minke whales. Seeing the children reach out and trying to touch the sea creatures was very entertaining. This was a wonderful field trip that compliments our school theme this year of "Love All - Live Big - Learn Deep!"

Love All. Live Big. Learn Deep 18-19 from Once Upon a Teacher on Vimeo.
We are very excited about our new theme for this 2018-2019 school year. Looping our Kindergarten students to first grade is always a pleasure. We begin our learning on the first day of school and it is also great to see familiar family and friend's faces after the summer. We will keep you posted as to the events in our classroom and school. It's so much fun being a Chets Creek student!
