Mr. Alberghini Came To Tell Us A Story To Help Us Celebrate The Publishing Of Our Books!

Have you heard the one about the bear & the frying pan?!?!  AMAZING!!!


We Finished Our Poem!

To help us come together as a community, we reflected on who we are as individuals and who we are as a community.  In addition to writing our poem, we created dots, inspired by Peter H. Reynold's book The Dot.  The dots dance through our poem to remind us that we are creative people who can do anything we set our minds to!

What We've Been Up To: Watch The Video To Get A Window Into Our Classroom!

We have been taking time to get outside, practice mindfulness & strengthen our community, as we become stronger readers, writers & mathematicians!  

Inspired by Andy Goldsworthy, we created art with nature as we practiced mindfulness outside.  

We shared our core values & beliefs, & discussed how our values help us to be kinder people who are flexible & support one another.  

We wrote a poem about where we come from, making connections while playing with writer's craft.  We are also working on making dots to surround our poem, inspired by Peter H. Reynold's The Dot.  The dots are there to remind us that we can do anything we set our minds to, we just have to believe in ourselves!

We are supporting each other as we finish our stories and get ready to make our books!

And we are enjoying our realistic fiction books and thinking more deeply about the texts we read!
