We shared with parents some of what we have been learning during our reading workshop time. Then we sang a few songs for our parents. After our program we had a pizza picnic with parents! It was a great day!
Our literacy luncheon was so much fun! We invited parents to come and visit our classroom and learn a little bit more about what we do all day as well as celebrate our accomplishments this year! Students were split into groups and each student took time to read their All About Me books that they had written during writing time.
We have all read our popcorn words and so what better way to celebrate than with a popcorn and pop party! Heather is enjoying her popcorn while watching the movie A Bug's Life
Hayden and Lauren head to their sits to sip their caffeine free pop! Miss Workman made sure to get just the right kind of pop!

We have been doing a unit on nonfiction. These kids are amazing! A KWL chart was modeled for students and we talked about how and why we use charts like these during research. Students were then put into groups to make their own KWL chart. We had students researching frogs, bears, octopus, raccoons and gorillas. They did amazing and are learning so much about their animals! I am very proud of this group of kids and how well they work together!
