And Then It Was Time To Make Our Books! @resvt #write #Nonfiction #Bookmaking #Art

After putting incredible care into our nonfiction writing, it was finally time to make our books.  Students chose their book structure and got to work!  The creativity in our room was contagious!!!  Kids made images pop, they made paper, they cut doors, they made books within books and even boxes to hold their beloved books!  We are so excited to celebrate our hard work by sharing our books with each other and by having a publishing party tomorrow!  I can't wait to show you their awesome books at our conferences!

Learning About The Joy Of Cooking & Eating Healthy Foods With Sean's Mom! @resvt #FuelYourBody

On Friday, Abby not only taught us about the importance of eating healthy foods, she showed us how to make delicious foods we can take with us anywhere!  Your children brought home the four different recipes so you can try making them together!  Abby let us know that you can make substitutions within the recipes to match your tastes or to meet your family's needs.
Thank you Abby for all that you taught us and for making our snack time extra healthy and delicious!!!

We Finished Our Delicious Word Wall!! And Our Writing Is SOOOOOOOO Delicious! @resvt #Write

Learning how to write well is incredibly important!  Building our vocabulary helps us to become better readers, writers & speakers!  Students collected delicious words from their favorite authors, then defined them for each other through art.  We also learned about parts of speech and how to use that understanding to write a complete sentence.  Each color represents a part of speech, organizing our wall in a meaningful way that helps us utilize the wonderful words we have gathered!

Students worked hard to strengthen their vocabularies, and it shines through in the information books they are about to publish!  Here's a taste of their favorite delicious words:
