Sharing continues with our blankets, quilts and afghans! We have very much enjoyed our 20 questions games and mathematical measurments!
Room 103 hosted two guest readers this week!
Ms. Pavlicek of Burlington's Science Center read Under One Rock, Bugs, Slugs and other Ughs! by Anthony D Fredericks. We enjoyed the story very much and realized there were many similarities to The Mitten by Jan Brett that we explored with her earlier this month! Both books involved lots of animals together in one, small place!
Mr. Lord, Pine Glen's ELL teacher was in to visit on Friday. He read the book Hipponotamus. We loved the silly story.
The benefit of so many visitors reading to us is that it has been inspiring us to read, read, read! - One of the highlights of the day is selecting a good book and quiet corner to enjoy a few minutes of reading!
Reading has many rewards! -It can help bring a sense of tranquility, increase vocabulary, improve our memory and thinking skill and make us better writers, and... it enhances our overall intelligence
(or for us locals........It makes you wicked smaht!). Shouldn't we all take time each day to enjoy a good book?! As an added bonus, Pine Glen students who track their reading are members of the reading corp. Congratulations to Lindsay our first 5 Star General! Thanks to the PTO each 5 Star General will be recognized for their efforts with a special gift.
We are hosting a small snapping turtle in room 103. Ms. Pavlicek delivered the 2 year old reptile and has encouraged us to observe it swimming, eating and thriving in it's container. Mrs. Hoyt allowed the turtle to visit students on the rug....but no fingers near his mouth!
|We love using the chalk on the hot top!|
