Reading Buddies
The first and third graders shared their published teaching books last Friday. Both classes worked on writing informational books over the past few weeks during Writer's Workshop. The children noticed that everyone used a table of contents to plan their chapters. They had a great time sharing information together about a topic they wrote a lot about. They also worked with their buddies today to make a holiday craft together. It is always fun to work with Mrs. Byers' friends!

Trick Words
First graders are busy reading and spelling trick words during Fundations work. Trick words are words that cannot be sounded out because they do not follow the rules.  The children enjoy working with partners to practice these words. They also use the word wall to locate these words during Writer's Workshop so they use the correct spelling in their written work. 






PJ Day! We had so much fun making reading forts and finding cozy spots to read with our buddies! ...
