We also celebrated Dot Day on Tuesday! After reading The Dot by Peter Reynolds we all decorated our own dot. Even Mrs. Kramer got in on the fun. Then, we used the ColAR app to bring our dots to life via augmented reality. So cool!!!
This was also our very first week of fully launched, self-select Daily Five. This means that the students get to pick which Daily Five station they want to do each round. The class did AWESOME!!!
Our first Tiger Pride Assembly of the year will be on Friday, September 25th at 2:30 PM in the gym. You are invited to join us for our monthly celebration where we recognize student success. Our class sits on the right-hand side of the gym if you are facing the stage area.
Please make plans to join us at Open House on Tuesday, September 29th! This will be a come and go event and will run from 6:00PM-7:30PM. A couple of the area food trucks will be onsite if you would like to eat with your family at Willard East. Please note, I will be at a meeting on the 29th during the day but I will be back at school for Open House! The Book Fair will also be open that evening.
BOOK FAIR INFORMATION
The scholastic book fair will be here September 28– October 2. Our set classroom time is Friday, October 2nd so we will be going to the Book Fair that day as a class. Other than our classroom time, you are welcome to take your child before / after school or during Open House. Please let me know if you have any questions!
Beginning next week, we will have a special helper in our classroom on Wednesday mornings. Ms. Perez will be joining us a practicum student from Missouri State for a couple of hours each week. She will mainly be observing and working with small groups of students but she will actually teach a couple of whole group lessons as well. I am excited for her to share her time with us. I have WONDERFUL memories of when I completed the same practicum. In fact, it was through this placement that I fell in love with Willard East. Of course, I did have an incredible cooperating teacher at East. Many of you know her, Cristi Davault, Claudia's mother!
