New Semester---New Goals!

We had a great first week back to school!  All classes discussed our new year's reading resolutions (read at least twenty minutes each day- it's fun!!),and learned how to take part in our Reading Rock Stars Program.  Make sure you turn in your reading log by January 25th!

In fifth grade, we enhanced our understanding of our Coraline (by the amazing Neil Gaiman) vocabulary using visuwords- an awesome online graphical dictionary.


Fourth graders continued honing their research skills, using the World Almanac for Kids.  We practiced using the Space Race feature in socrative.
In kindergarten we compared and contrasted fiction vs. nonfiction, with Carolyn Buehner's Snowmen at Night and Ann Herriges' Winter.  
 

Lastly, a reminder about upcoming activities.
  • 5th Grade School Battle of the Books will occur in late February (exact date coming soon).  One lucky team will journey to the District Battle on Tuesday, March 19th.
  • The 4th Grade Battle of the Books will take place on April 4th at 1:30
Happy reading to all!
