Welcome to Camp Wanna-Learn! I have been working hard on our classroom and I can't wait to meet you all. School starts on Wednesday, August 14th! I'm planning lots of fun learning for our first day of school. Here's a little bit about me... I have two children, Sarah and Ben. Sarah is married to Joe and they have two children, Joey and Emma. Ben just got married on Saturday to Katie. I have a cat named Cherry Chase. She likes to jump and play and sleep! I am lucky because I live close enough to be able to walk to school every day. I love, love, love to read. I also like to bake and cook and I love to spend time with my family...especially my grandchildren. I'm looking forward to a wonderful year of learning and growing! See you soon!
Reading- We will be working on procedures for Guided Reading and Reader's Workshop. I have lots of great books to read to start the year. Do you like to read? What's your favorite book?
Word Work- We will be reviewing letters and sounds, rhyming, and working with our names for the first few weeks of school, as well as procedures for word work during Guided Reading time.
Math- We will be decomposing numbers 1-10 and learning procedures for Guided Math time.
Science- I will be piloting two science units during the first trimester of school. I'm so excited we are able to do this for science. The first unit we'll be working on is Light and Sound, the second unit we'll be working on is animal and plant adaptations. We will have lots of fun as we learn about these science phenomena together.
Writing- We will start our writing adventure by learning how to write narratives. We will also be working on informative writing through our Science units.
