Welcome back & happy Thursday!

We had a very busy morning with the Oral Competition this morning!  Congratulations the all the students who made it the finals and who won.  I am still in the process of transferring the recorded poems by the students, I had recruited my husband to help! Fingers crossed!  The SK's did not have gym class with Ms. Yustin, due to her covering Ms. Smith's class for the Oral Competition.  Please continue to bring in your re-registration packages, our class made it to second place!  Keep up the great work, we are on our way to winning a class pizza party!

Daily 5
The students were engaged in Literacy Centers with partners today.

The SK's reviewed what they learned about time by the hour.  We were engaged with a time splat game, where each of the students played against each other in pairs and had to splat the time number card that matched my big clock.  The students also worked with partners to complete a time worksheet.

The students enjoyed music with Ms. McMillan.  Here is a link to her website to see what the students were up too:
