Our first two days have been busy! We have participated in activities on getting to know our classmates, establishing classroom routines, jumping right into readers workshop and beginning our first class novel, "Windcatcher" by Avi. This novel is full of adventure and takes place in Connecticut's Thimble Islands. Our first literacy unit will be focusing on story elements, with a theme on core values. On friday afternoon we played a game called Places Please to begin our first math unit, place value. It was such a pleasure to begin to get to know the class. I am looking forward to the year!
