Today the kids and I had a great day together! I think one thing that started our day out great was that several of my friends brought in books that they wrote over the long weekend! YEP – they wrote and illustrated their own books! Our writers are blossoming in room 7, and it’s so exciting! As if that wasn’t enough, after I gave one of our reading groups a new book, one of the children said, “Wow, I feel like I can really read!” Another student exclaimed, “This looks like a chapter book. I must be a real reader!” My heart melted… This folks, is why I love teaching first grade! Thanks for your help at home!
One more thing to dig out of your recycling bin – cereal boxes! If you finish a box of cereal in the next week or so, I’d love to have the empty box! It can be any size box, and any kind of cereal. Thanks so much!
