Deer Mice (Jan. 8-12)

Hello all! We've had a great week here at school. The children have gotten back into the routine of our day and are eager to strengthen their skills.

In Reading Workshop, the children have been learning to point to one word at a time when they read their books and trying hard to match the words they say to the ones on the page. We've been calling this Pointer Power and comparing it to the super powers of a super hero.

In Writing Workshop, the kids have been working hard at writing so that other people can read what they wrote. They are focusing on writing all the sounds they hear in a word, and also putting spaces between their words so we can see them easier. They are all very proud of how they've improved since the beginning of the year and enjoy showing their work off to others.

Next week we will be closed on Monday, MLK Day, but we'll see everyone on Tuesday. Have a great weekend!
