Our First Publishing Party!!!

Wow!  Our classroom is full of AMAZING writers!!!  After observing nature and learning about the craft of similes, students wrote beautifully descriptive poems about nature using at least one simile.  Students are bringing their poems home to share with you, so make sure to read them and celebrate your wonderful poet!

We ended today with a publishing party where friends shared their nature poems with one another and heard specific compliments about all of the incredible choices they made as writers!

Who We Are!

As we get to know each other, we took time to discuss who we are and who we want to become, both as individuals and as a community.  We brainstormed our beliefs, then chose the statements we felt best represent who we are and who we will become this year.  We then hung our powerful words on our wall as a constant and beautiful reminder!
